Module 2

Build their language foundation

Many wonder how language acquisition works. Some find it a bit challenging. Let this module help you understand how to build up your little monkeys' language by helping them to form phrases.


Teaching Grammar to 7-10 year olds

Grammar!? YUCK! We don’t like it! Do you agree with the statement? Teaching grammar is actually less messy than we think it is. Join us in this session to gain some knowledge in how to introduce grammar to our young learners. You may be surprised by the end of the session that it is less messy than we think.


Teaching Lexis to Juniors and Teenagers 

Juniors? Ugh... Teenagers? Oh god... Teaching them lexis? Making them remember words? Is this a joke? Of course not, right? We all love juniors and teenagers. However, they do often forget new vocabulary or are unable to reuse them. Some of the little monkeys cannot even remember one new word after 5 minutes. In this workshop, we will show you how to guide our learners to be able to learn new words and retrieve them later in different stages of the lesson or even after a few lessons.


Guided Discovery for Juniors and Teenagers

What is Learners’ autonomy? Why is it important for us to promote autonomy in classrooms? How should we do this? Come along and find out. In this session you will learn about the GD in classroom and how to promote a student-led classroom where teachers take the role of being a guide rather than a lecturer.



What is CLIL? CLIL means Content Language Integrated learning. Why is everyone talking about it these days? How do you teach a CLIL lesson? Join this session to find out more about CLIL and what goes on in a usual CLIL lesson and why we should implement CLIL into our curriculum.



Teaching English Using Songs and Chants

Teaching English Using Songs and Chants - Oh come on! We don’t like our voices! Or; Singing? Some children don’t like them and I stand by that statement! Do you feel this way about singing? Well, come and join this session. Whether you love singing or not I can guarantee you there are tricks to it. You will also discover something new about how important it is to use songs and chants from time to time in lessons.


Arts and Crafts 

Using art and crafts is a unique way to hook our young learners’ interest in our ESL classes. During the stages in crafts, we notice that our learners are more focused and settled for this activity as they need to use their creativity and motor skills. How can we make sure that the lesson is integrated in an ESL format? How to ensure that learners are still using the target language? Join us to take a look at how we can implement art and crafts into our ESL lesson.
