IELC’s Young Learners course is a fun course that encourages children to think about the world around them with meaningful and fun activities designed to stimulate and develop their creative talents. Young Learners make up a considerable part of IELC’s student base and the curriculum is an important part of IELC’s goal of providing students with the skills they will need for their future. The course is a motivating and enjoyable way to learn English, supplemented with cartoon stories and interactive activities designed to make the whole learning experience entertaining and enjoyable.
The course uses a series of materials that introduce English to young children through various engaging activities for all the listening, reading, writing and speaking skills. Adventure stories, comics, rhymes, songs and games are used to present and practise the new language in a way that young children can easily relate to.
Friendly teachers help young children feel comfortable and confident in practising the target language. A team of native and non-native speaker teachers provides the best of both worlds. Non-native speaker teachers help young children learn better using their first language while native speaker teachers supply an authentic source of language and context. All IELC’s teachers are trained to be sensitive to young learners academic, social and emotional needs so that each child feels motivated to learn.
FUN AND INTERACTIVE ACTIVITIES
Stimulating activities are incorporated throughout the course.These activities involve students speaking and moving around in a dynamic and interactive classroom. Apart from practising the target language, students also learn about cooperation, teamwork, leadership while having lots of fun in the process.
Young learners are already very comfortable with digital technology so it is quite natural for them to enjoy learning English with digital multimedia resources in the classroom. Collaborative online research tasks, for example, provide a great chance for young learners to engage with interesting topics that are relevant to their lives.
