Teaching English to Young Learners course

Teaching English to Young Learners in France is the fastest growing area in English teaching, so there is a huge demand  in France and worldwide for qualified young learners’ teachers. Language schools are beginning to require an add-on TEYL qualification now when looking for new young learners’ teachers – and rightly so of course. Teaching kids is a very different ball game!

This 18 hour classroom based course is taken as an add-on week to our Certificate in TEFL course (see dates below). The TEYL course is open to anyone who has our  TEFL Toulouse qualification (or equivalent) and runs at our training centre.

Successful trainees are awarded the TEFL Toulouse Certificate in Teaching Young Learners (Cert. TEYL).

TEYL Course content

  • Classroom management for young learners and teenagers
  • How children learn in comparison with how adults learn (social constructivism, behaviourism…)
  • Teaching vocabulary to children
  • Planning lessons for children
  • Storytelling
  • Songs, chants and games
  • Teaching practice

The course mainly focuses on the 5 to 12 age group, although classroom management for teenagers is also included.
