Course Description

In this course, we provide a guide of how to teach new vocabulary in the primary classroom for teachers who have little experience with this age group.  We will first explore what learning a new word involves in a young learners context. Then, we’ll look at some techniques that are effective with children, focusing on four aspects of teaching vocabulary: meaningpronunciationwriting and form.
