To learn a language, we have to use it. We need to interact, using the language to communicate with others, both in speaking and writing. Our young learners respond best to natural, contextualized communication that is meaningful, enjoyable, and relevant to their lives. They are also very social and enjoy being active users of the language, not focused on rules or grammar, but on real communication. What kinds of activities can we use to encourage them to be both active and interactive with their teacher and their peers? In this webinar, we’ll explore a number of activities to use with our young learners to motivate them to participate and to develop the knowledge, skills, and attitudes to be good local and global citizens.
