Teaching English to Young Learners

As an educator who spends time with young learners, you’ve seen first-hand how quickly they pick up a new language and how easy it is to engage them in further study—or lose their interest completely! In this free, practice-oriented course, you will join colleagues around the world to explore innovative, effective, and engaging ways to teach English to young learners—and, in the process, set them on a course for success in all their future language endeavors.

In this seven-week course, English Language Specialist Carol Foye will guide primary school ESL teachers through a MOOC on innovative ways to teach and capture the imaginations of young English learners, ages 3-11. In addition to guiding teachers through the MOOC, Foye will conduct live, online workshops where she’ll review content and give participants even more practical techniques and strategies. In each meeting, she’ll be on hand to better explain the concepts presented as well as answer any questions that arise. Participants will come away with a deeper understanding of the content as well as a new professional learning network they can call on in the future.
