3 Strategies For Motivating Young Learners - TEFL Blog


Mon, 10 Jun 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas 3 Strategies For Motivating Young Learners What motivates young students to learn a new language? That’s the question many teachers have when teaching English as a Second Language (ESL). Many children learn English because their parents or teachers dictate it, not necessarily by choice. Additionally, often there is no immediate real-world application of English outside the classroom (Noamen, 2009). For many students, the thirty to sixty minutes in class may be the only language exposure they’ll have. It is therefore critical for ESL teachers to motivate students to learn English by creating a communicative learning environment where students engage in real language experiences and by utilizing a variety of fun and...  [Read more]
