    Teaching English to Young Learners Lesson 7 Summary

    Here is a summary of what you learned this lesson.

    Engaging Learners Through Stories Stories are powerful tools to engage and motivate students to learn English.

    Consider the following about learning through stories: choosing stories,

    telling stories, planning story-based lessons and extending stories.

    The more words children know, the higher the level of their English

    comprehension will be.

    There are so many things you can do with stories in the ESL classroom. Just

    let your imagination go and soon so will the imaginations of your students!

    Engaging Learners Through Drama Drama activities help build confidence and creativity in young children as

    they develop their English language skills.

    You can use drama activities as icebreakers or filler activities at the

    beginning or after a lesson to provide students with time to practice new

    language targets in a fun and interactive way.

    Most drama activities involve some physical movement and free expression,

    ideal for kinaesthetic learners.

    Remember: Drama and children - a winning combination.

    Engaging Learners Through Games Games play a central role in EFL lessons and make it possible for children to

    fully immerse themselves in learning.

    It is important to remember and remind students of the purpose of games in

    our classrooms. Keep the focus on learning.

    When you are planning / adapting games, remember the critical tips

    including knowing the game yourself, introducing it clearly to students,

    modeling the game, and recognizing when you need to end it.
