OVERVIEW:

Young learners respond best to natural, contextualized real communication that is meaningful, enjoyable, and relevant to their lives. They are also very social and enjoy being active users of the language, not focused on rules or grammar, but on real communication. Through songs, chants, games, role plays, projects and other activities with their teacher and their peers, young learners can be both active and interactive and motivated to participate, since these activities are also fun. These activities can also help our young learners develop into global citizens, aware of other cultures, and proud of their own.
