Teaching English to Young Learners: April 15 – May 20, 2019

About this course:

The Teaching English to Young Learners MOOC is provided by George Mason University, as part of the American English (AE) E-Teacher Program, sponsored by the U.S. Department of State and administered by FHI 360.

Teaching English to Young Learners (TEYL) is designed to introduce you to the theory and practice of teaching English as a foreign language (EFL) to young learners 3-10 years old. Through engaging videos and practical readings, you will explore approaches for teaching English that are not only effective but also fun and engaging for children. You will learn techniques for teaching new vocabulary and grammar that encourage student participation. In addition, you will gain new ideas for teaching listening, speaking, reading and writing in a meaningful context. Through weekly participation in this MOOC, you will have the opportunity to share ideas with peers and apply course content to your learning environment. Get ready to learn about TEYL and be part of an international learning community with teachers around the world!

Participants who complete all required activities with a score of 70% or higher will receive a digital badge and certificate of participation.
