This course about teaching English to children, written by Anna Hasper and developed by Emma Pratt has been so helpful! I began a job very quickly in an ESL Elementary School in Europe. I’m a trained art teacher but had no experience or training in teaching English to young learners. The course has been fun, interesting, and engaging-visually as well as pedagogically. The amount of material covered was perfect for an online study course and each unit has excellent links for further reading and study. I went through the course twice and could go through it again because it’s so useful. The videos of teachers and students were particularly helpful. The visual, auditory, and reading materials are rich and universally applicable, yet never feel standardized. It’s creative, thoroughly researched, and inspiring – I would recommend this course to anyone!
