50-hour course in teaching English to young learners (CTEYL)

Within the TEFL/TESOL business, teaching the English language to adult learners is clearly a large section of the industry, however, teaching English to young learners is experiencing a rapid growth in demand right around the world. Our CTEYL training course has been designed to give you the specialized skills and techniques that are necessary in order to provide an effective teaching environment for this specific group of learners.

When providing language tuition for adult learners we can often assume that they have chosen to be in the classroom and that they are likely to be self motivated and keen to learn, however, when teaching young learners the classroom dynamic can often be very different. With this in mind, the CTEYL course looks closely at the specific strategies that can be employed in order to keep young language learners interested and motivated within the classroom.

With the addition of this specialized training certificate you will find that your general teaching skills will be greatly enhanced and you will have access to a far wider range of employment opportunities worldwide.
