Contributors to the Course

“There is so much to know about Young Learners. Too many people make the unfortunate assumption that with a qualification like the CELTA alone, newly trained teachers will be effective with children. That's far from the truth. ”

Main Course Writer, CELTA and Delta Trainer, YL Teacher Developer

Anna Hasper

“Working with teachers in a public primary school and years of teaching older young learners and teens with minimal support meant that I knew just how much a course like this would have helped me when I was starting out. I'd like to thank the children, teachers and parents who all contributed their knowledge and time for this course and to Anna for her expertise. Arohanui.”
