Train The Teacher Two-Day Workshop on Teaching Young Learners*
*Available on application (and for free) to graduates of the Trinity CertTESOL with Train The Teacher. Other teachers may attend the course for 550 HKD.
ESL students are getting younger and younger. In the past ten years, the ESL industry has seen an exponential increase in the number of children learning English as a foreign language worldwide. Hong Kong, in particular, has a huge market for teaching Young Learners; look on any job site, and you will see the majority of English teacher job vacancies are for teaching learners aged 4 to 12.
While you will have transferable skills gained from your initial teacher training course, teaching young learners has its own unique set of challenges. Attendees of the workshop will look at strategies and techniques needed to face these effectively, and maximise learning outcomes. As is the case with TTT courses, the concentration is on practical and immediately useful techniques grounded in sound pedagogy.
Techniques for instruction to improve YL classroom management and learning
Using digital media with Young Learners – sites, media and techniques
Using phonics to build reading – extensive techniques and tasks
How to teach writing
Principles and practice of how to teach for STEAM
Using games, songs & chants to promote language learning
Teachers who attend the course and enrol on the Trinity CertTESOL with Train The Teacher within 6 months of the course date will receive a 550 KHD discount on Trinity CertTESOL fees with Train The Teacher.
Training will be provided by Train The Teacher, Hong Kong’s paramount Trinity College London CertTESOL training team; authors of six books on the Trinity GESE exams; editors of Pedagogy, teacher trainers for schools in Hong Kong, and frequent teacher trainers for Cambridge English Exams at The British Council, Hong Kong.
