In this course, we provide a description of what to expect in the young learners’ classroom for teachers who haven’t had much experience teaching children. We will first explore what’s unique about teaching young learners, compared to teaching adults. Then, we’ll look at some critical classroom management techniques that all teachers of young learners should master. Finally, we’ll look at a handful of techniques you can draw on to enable effective language learning by the young learners in your class.
