ABSTRACT

Practical ways of motivating Young Learners

A sense of achievement, motivation and fun are key elements in teaching children. How to incorporate them successfully in our everyday teaching? In this activity-based workshop I am going to present a bunch of ready-to-use, practical, interactive tasks which guarantee that your students will enjoy the lesson from the moment they enter the classroom to the minute they leave. I will also show you howto encourage young learners to communicate, monitor their progress and establish a system for rewarding their efforts.
