Course Online: 50-hour course in teaching English to young learners (CTEYL) | with tutor

Teaching English to young learners forms a large part of the TEFL/TESOL market. In many countries throughout the world specialized English courses are on offer for students from as young as two years old. There are a number of reasons why teaching young learners differs from teaching adult students and within this course we focus on these differences and show you how to adapt your existing skills to address them.

We may often assume that adults taking English language courses are there because they are keen to learn, this however is not a safe assumption with young learners. This course aims to show, by looking at some educational theories, what specific teaching strategies can be employed to keep our young learners motivated and interested in the classroom. With the addition of this qualification to your CV/resume, you should find that your knowledge and employment prospects are greatly enhanced.
