Teaching ESL & Knowing Your Audience: Young Learners vs. Adults - TEFL Blog


Wed, 13 Feb 2019 Jon ITTT Alumni Experiences Teaching ESL & Knowing Your Audience: Young Learners vs. Adults Whether speaking at a public event where thousands have gathered, or talking politics around a table with friends, this simple piece of advice is well-known to anyone who has ever done any public speaking. But, it is also critical advice for the aspiring teacher—whether those teaching English as a second language, or those teaching chemistry in high school. The more well-acquainted a teacher is with his or her classroom, the more successful he or she will be in engaging their minds in the topic at hand.

How to Approach Teaching Adults and Children? - TEFL Blog


Wed, 26 Aug 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas How to Approach Teaching Adults and Children? This TEFL course covered a huge variety of topics, and it was all useful information for English teachers broadly. It had a nice balance of actual how-to-tasks (i.e. how to make a lesson), as well as guidance and advice dependent on the situation (i.e. how to deal with a misbehaving student or how to establish rapport with a class). While there was new information throughout each chapter for me, the most useful, applicable information for me as a teacher was the differences between young learners and adults. This is mostly because I have taught ages preschool-late 60s (not necessarily English, I taught preschool in the USA and have taught private piano/harp lessons). I learned how to...  [Read more]

Games as a Teaching Method for Adult ESL Students - TEFL Blog


Tue, 03 Dec 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Teaching Ideas Games as a Teaching Method for Adult ESL Students When we start to learn new things as children, we tend to do that with the help of games.

How can an instructor effectively use games with adult EFL students? - TEFL Blog


Tue, 30 Apr 2019 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences How can an instructor effectively use games with adult EFL students? When I first made the transition from primary school to university, I knew that my lesson plans were clearly going to have to change. As I began to come up with ideas for my new job, I was disappointed that most of the content I previously used had no place in the university. Games, such as Hangman and Pictionary, worked excellently in capturing the interests of my young students, but I didn’t think these childish games had any place in a university classroom. I found out weeks later how wrong I was when I used Pictionary at the beginning of one of my courses to ‘preview’ the vocabulary we would be covering in class that day. I discovered...  [Read more]

Advantages of Teaching Adult Students and Implications on Teacher’s Methodology - TEFL Blog


Thu, 27 Dec 2018 Linda Dunsmore Alumni Experiences Advantages of Teaching Adult Students and Implications on Teacher’s Methodology How does teaching adults differ from teaching young learners? To most people, it should be rather obvious that teaching children is very different from teaching adults, due to adults being more mature and having more life experience than children. This article discusses the advantages of teaching adult students and what the implications on a teacher’s methodology are. Adult learners refers to anyone who is above the age of eighteen. Although it is not a perfect definition, we will nevertheless use eighteen as our cut-off age since it is the most common age threshold in many language schools when it comes to deciding whether a student should go...  [Read more]
