Primary essentials


This is a primary teacher development course for teachers of English teaching young learners aged 7 to 11 years old. 

It provides an introduction to the essential principles and practice of primary English language teaching using video, audio and community elements. This includes online work, where you have to complete tasks and discuss topics with other participants plus self-study. Self-study activities include assignments, lesson planning and reflection on your lessons.  

Participants are assessed at the end of each unit, and these assignments form a portfolio on which the participants are given a final assessment. 

The course lasts approximately 10 weeks.

Level of English required: B2+
