English Grammar - Past Simple - Teaching Ideas 2 - Teaching English Second Language


Below you can read feedback from an ITTT graduate regarding one section of their online TEFL certification course. Each of our online courses is broken down into concise units that focus on specific areas of English language teaching. This convenient, highly structured design means that you can quickly get to grips with each section before moving onto the next.

Unit 2 introduces some of the major learning and development theories applicable to young learners and highlights the different motivators between learning a first language, and acquiring a second language. I found the different approaches to teaching 5 - 9 year olds and 9 - 13 year olds very helpful, also the suggestions on designing a syllabus for the two groups of young learners.In this unit, I learned about incorporating various themes into my lessons. This was a very helpful unit, in that I think teaching young learners requires various activities, such as stories, music, games, and art. I am thankful for the online resources listed in this unit as well, since they could be invaluable as I look for the right activities to help young learners learn English.
