Teaching Young Learners Course
One of our most popular courses, the teaching YLs course gives 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.
The Teaching Young Learners Course meets, once a week (Fri, 14:00-17:00). The course is currently offered in a online format.

"The Young Learners Course is engaging, instructional and fun. You will definitely come away with a lot of new tools to add to your teaching tool box. Recommend for those with or without young learners experience."
