IH Madrid Young Learners Course

Teaching English to children and teenagers

Ideas and activities for teaching English to young learners

The course is ideal for newly qualified teachers and those with little experience in teaching children. There is a good balance of teaching practice and methodology and provides teachers with the skills to teach children aged 3-16. Two different topics are covered in each session and participants are actively involved to try out the activities.

Each day there will be two core sessions that cover different aspects of planning and teaching young learners. Teachers will be actively involved in the sessions and try out many of the activities with follow-on discussion.

Course contents 
Child Development, Classroom Management, Lesson Planning, Motivating Children, Presenting New Language, Revising and Recycling Language, Using Stories, Speaking Skills, Exploiting Music and Songs, Feedback & Correction, Creative Activities, Children’s Games, Teaching Pronunciation, Drama and Movement, Adapting the Coursebook, Evaluation and Exams.

The tutors are all working teachers with a wide experience in teaching young learners across different age groups. There will be guidance on planning lessons and a wide variety of materials for teachers to use straight away in their own classes.
