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?

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 purposeful...  [Read more]

Why are Games so Important for Young Learners? - TEFL Blog


Tue, 28 Jul 2020 Elizaveta Pachina Alumni Experiences Why are Games so Important for Young Learners? When I think of my earliest childhood memories, I remember that I used to love to play games in the classroom (charades, 7-up/head down-thumb up, categories, bingo, etc.).

Young learners may not have an interest in studying because they don't yet have any motivation from learning, so they are only interested in games, songs, and other fun activities. When playing most of the games in the classroom, young learners are compelled to...  [Read more]
