For learners to become capable, knowledgeable and engaged users of English, teachers need to provide clear, creative conditions. Instead of expecting them to ‘get out of their comfort zone’, help enlarge their zones step by step. Jeanne Perrett, ELT expert and author, shares teaching tips and activities to build up learners' confidence in all four language skills.

Join Jeanne Perrett's webinar with activities & practical tips. 
 
When we are teaching learners aged three to six, we have two main language aims: to help the children feel comfortable in an English-speaking environment and for them to understand and then use very small amounts of language. The relatively short attention span of our youngest learners and the fact that we do not usually, at this stage, introduce reading or writing can make this seem challenging.
 
In this webinar, using examples from My Disney Stars and Friends, we will look at how we can achieve the goals of early language acquisition and confidence by playing, singing, chanting, storytelling, listening, speaking and doing practical, focused activities in organised and flexible lessons.

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 focus on practical ideas and teaching tips for how we can organise and manage a class of young learners. We 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 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 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.

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 discusses 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.
