When teaching pre-school children, we are not just teaching English. We are nuturing the whole child to grow their emotional, creative, mathematical and physical abilities. Pre-schoolers are still experiencing learning as opposed to formally learning, so our learning environment should be positive, fun and active. This webinar looks at principles of teaching very young learners, using their own world and the world around them, plus using stories, songs and projects to teach English, whilst developing their values, collaboration skills and building confidence, too.
