In this session i am going...


    In this session i am going to take you a journey back to the early days of my career and share few anecdotes of how I initially tried (and pretty much) failed to teach young learners successfully. I will elaborate on how the teaching of young and very young learners has involved over the years into what is now an evidence - based and serious endeavour that leads to measurable outcomes. I will share a number of best practice teaching examples to demonstrate that in spite of the new "seriousness" of teaching the young and the very young, it can nevertheless be an extremely enjoyable process for both leaners and teachers. Come and join a session that combines theory and practice in a thought provoking and fun way. Find out why I am convinced that TPR (the Total Physical Response) is probably the world's most misunderstood language teaching method and how working with stories can create a sense of "ownership of English", leading to rapid and successful learning. Then discover the one most significant difference between young and very young learners - and no, It's not age!

    In this Helbling English webinar, Herbert Puchta starts with psychological insights into the very young learner’s inner world. Then he discusses how the foreign language teacher can support the child’s social and cognitive development and help them take key values on board. Using examples from 'Hooray! Let’s Play! Second edition', this session demonstrates how the teacher can achieve all this in a joyful atmosphere, so children learn the language naturally and actively.
