The course aims to give you practical ideas for the young learner classroom and an opportunity to reflect on young learner teaching theory and practice. The seminars are highly practical, covering activities and techniques used in the young learner classroom, such as using songs, drama, stories, and videos; classroom management and planning; and approaches to teaching language and skills. For state school teachers the course can be used to gain 16 credits as long as it is approved by their school director.
The IH Young Learners Foundation Course meets once a week for 3 hours each time on 4 Fridays, or twice for 2 full days, on Saturdays.
Please note that the course is currently offered in a part-time format and therefore only suitable for Budapest-based teachers.
