Presenter(s): Jeanne Perrett Presenter Jeanne Perrett

We want our very young students to enjoy their first years of learning English. We want them to feel happy and confident in the classroom, and to cooperate well with each other.

In this session we will focus on practical ideas and teaching tips for how we can organise and manage a class of young learners. We will look at ideas for circle time, games, miming, using their books and workbooks, singing and chanting, and simple craft work.

By teaching young learners’ values we can help them develop better, find their place in society and improve their social skills.

In this practical workshop we will look at how themes in the fictional worlds of Disney stories can provide a springboard to teaching key values and Global Citizenship in an engaging way in the English Language Classroom. We will also look at how young learners can relate these values to their own lives. Ideas and activities to use in class will be used from the new Disney Kids Readers and My Disney Stars and Friends.

Presenter(s): Rachel Wilson Presenter Rachel Wilson

Using readers in the young learner classroom often gets put in the “nice to do if there’s time” category. However, there is compelling evidence to show that placing reading—in all its forms—at the heart of the learning experience in the primary years, can have a life-long positive impact on a child.

In this webinar, Rachel will be discussing the importance of building a reading habit from a young age, and showing how to use readers in the classroom with the help of the Disney Kids Readers.

Progress in language learning – what is it and how can we measure it? How can we motivate learners to learn? So they can see the long-term benefits of learning a language. These are some of the fundamental questions facing language teachers, ever more so today with online and hybrid learning. What tools are there to help teachers? The discussion focuses on both traditional concepts of motivation and more recent developments in technology to support learning. This shines a light on the complex factors which underpin the psychology of progress.
