50-hour Course in Teaching English to Young Learners (CTEYL)

Teaching English to young learners requires several different skills and techniques in order to create the environment necessary to deliver an effective teaching program. With this in mind, our CTEYL course has been designed to provide you with these skills, therefore improving your teaching ability and your employment prospects.

When teaching English to adults it is usually true that they have freely chosen to attend your class, something that cannot always be said when teaching young learners. To address this difference, this course looks at educational theories, teaching methodologies and specific activities that can be drawn upon to keep your students interested and motivated in the classroom.

You will receive the support and assistance of our experienced tutors throughout the length of the course. You can contact a tutor whenever you have any problems or questions, and they will get back to you via email within one working day.

Course Curriculum

You will be given up to six months to complete all aspects of the course, and within this maximum time frame you will be free to work at whatever pace you prefer. Once you feel you have fully absorbed the material for each unit, your understanding of its contents will be evaluated before moving on to the following unit. When you have successfully completed all units, you will then complete a final lesson planning task. The lesson plan will be submitted online for assessment by our online tutors.
