This is how our TEFL graduates feel they have gained from their course, and how they plan to put into action what they learned:
Learning Modes young learners vs. AdultsThere is a popular theory that second language acquisition is much easier in children than in adults, that after adolescence it becomes much harder to acquire a new language. However, there are also arguments that support the theory that adults have a distinct advantage when learning a second langue. What is agreed upon generally is that teaching each of these groups should be approached differently. According to Krashen (1981), in the second language learning context, young children learn differently from older learners. As he explains, some second language theorists assume that children acquire language and adults can only learn. Children often learn indirectly rather than directly. In other words, they take information from all sides, learning from everything around rather than focusing on the precise topic they have to study. As Zhao and Morgan (2004) relate, children generally are not consciously interested in language for its own sake. Instead, they direct their attention towards things that are easy for them to understand, children therefore learn more effectively when their attention is focused on meaning rather than on language.
