30 hour Teaching Young Learners Course

Modules One-Two:

Module One: How to Make Sense of Teacher/Learner Needs

Understanding your students’ language abilities and why they want to learn English. Get to know the basic principles behind teaching younger learners and teens. 

Module Two: Understand Your Responsibilities as a Young Learners Teacher

Classroom routines are important in any good classroom but for younger learners it is vital to have structure and consistency. Learn classroom management techniques that will eliminate the chaos and make your lessons run smoothly.

Modules Three-Four:

Module Three: How to Teach Grammar and Vocabulary

Did you know that we say about 7,500 words on an average day? Don’t worry you will only be asked to teach your young learners a few hundred of these. From beginner vocab like HELLO and GOODBYE you’ll study the tools to teach vocabulary and use them effectively so that your students can use it in the right context.

By the end of this module, you’ll also know your present continuous from your present simple tense. Most of all, you’ll be familiar and confident with grammatical terms.

Module Four: How to Teach Reading & Listening Skills

These are called ‘Receptive skills’ because the student is receiving language. By the end of this lesson, you’ll know the most effective ways to engage students in reading English and how to write it. This includes setting listening tasks to music, audio stories and recordings, to reading articles, emails, facebook posts both inside and outside the classroom.

Modules Five:

Module Five: How to Teach Writing & Speaking Skills

These are called ‘Productive skills’ because students produce language. You’ll learn plenty of  useful ideas about how to get your students up on their feet and chatting to you about favorite superheroes, games or pets. You’ll also get help with how to teach your students to write English – at all levels, from favorite foods, to their hobbies.

I chose 168 hours course initially but it was too hard for me so I contacted one of the staffs and asked if I can change the course. They... were very helpful and quickly responded to my request. With the 120 hours course I learned lots of new practical skills that I will be able to use when I teach English :)read more

I'd definitely recommend Premier to others, everything is very organized and the curriculum is perfectly paced for self-studying.There's a... quiz after every module and most of the questions are open-ended, so it's quite a lot of work, but it's worth it, because since it's required to pass all of the assessments to get the certificate it means that the certificate itself is of high quality.And aside from the certificate, the material was very helpful and got me to improve on my teaching skills by applying what I learn in class.Upon reflecting on it I realize that the teaching techniques I'd developed on my own through time and experience were already mentioned in the course, so I'd imagine that the new things I learned in a few hours just by taking the course would've taken me years to learn on my own from experience.But there's one problem.. They don't mention at the begining that you have to pay 53$ for the digital certificate, just to get the PDF. It's really annoying finiding out like that at the end of the course, but if you already know before purcahsing the course then it's not as bad, so make sure you add 53$ to the price of every course you might consider when you're browsing, just generally add an extra 53$ to your budget before getting into anything.read more
