Teaching English to very young learners (pre-school/early primary) 10-day
This 10 day course (a 5 day course is also available) will enable educational practitioners to improve their skills of teaching, supporting, and motivating very young learners of English. It aims to provide fun and practical ideas in a professional environment where all those taking part can share their best practice and ideas. At the beginning of the week, a young learner curriculum will be developed and throughout the week participants will consider how activities can be used to meet this curriculum.
Participants are expected to take a full and active part in all aspects of the course content in order to maximise the teaching and learning opportunities on offer. A wide range of ideas will be explored, creating a forum for experienced classroom practitioners to share and discuss teaching at this important time in a child’s educational development

Exciting and something new
I really liked the classes with Bill and Mary. We had many opportunities to speak freely, and we also learnt about some Maltese history. On some days, we went outdoors for our lessons, and I thought that it was great that we could go out of the classroom. It was exciting and something new for most of us. Lastly, I would like to give a special thanks to Mary because she was wonderful!"
