The material that is offered in this Young Learner course is creative and highly informative. The course offers in-depth terminology, and useful online resources for lesson planning, activities and much more. I’m happy that I took this course. I now have the tools I need to feel more confident in a Young Learner classroom. The understanding of tasks, why we use them, how to engage the young learners, as well as how to provide a positive teaching environment, is what I wanted to learn. I feel that this course has given me that. Thank you! The tutor, Emma’s response time is quick.
