More often than not, a course book is something that comes pre-selected with the class. Thus I suspect when I have a book to teach, I will mostly be familiarizing myself with a text. Most language classes structure the syllabus around a course book so this is a necessity. The key will be to adapt a class with the book without using it as a crutch.This unit outlines the textbook chapters that I will be using throughout this course for teaching young learners. It explains what 'young learners' are while also laying out the aims and objectives of the course. This unit also provides a brief overview on potential employment prospects which includes various types of employers, hours, and salary.
