Course Description

Whether you’re new to teaching early childhood English or are already an early childhood teacher who’d like to learn more, this mini course will help you learn what is unique about teaching them. First, we’ll look at the differences between teaching adults and ECE and then explore the differences with Primary-aged children and ECE. We will then examine activities that are successful at these ages. 

From this overview, you will be better equipped to choose your own pathway through the other early childhood mini courses, all of which offer practical activities and tips to make your early childhood classes a success.
