Online Teaching Young Learners Course

About The Online Teaching YL Course
TEFL Education now floats the TEYL Certification Course - the most competitive & comprehensive online option specially framed for Young Learner English Teachers’ training. The course emphasizes on teaching the young learners - Intermediate to Advance English instruction applicable in a Young learner teaching environment and the ESL primary Schools.

o Why is there a need for a separate Teacher Training Course for Children?
o If I have been teaching English or if I have already completed a Teacher Training


Course in English, do I need another course to teach Young learners?
The answer to all these questions is a YES. The teaching of English to young children has become especially important in recent years. Many teachers find themselves teaching in primary school even though they have not been trained for this level. There is no doubt that the role and importance of English has risen in many countries. As a result an increasing number of parents are sending their children to language schools after regular school hours, and governments are introducing English into their elementary curriculum. These trends have led to an increasing need for training.

How to get started
You will sign up for this certificate program by contacting Innovative Education by emailing at You must have access to email to receive and submit materials during your program. Once you designate the self-access program, and pay the required fees, you will be sent by email the initial package of documents, instructions, and study materials.


Course Content

Phase 1: The Learner
Teaching ESL to children is not merely a matter of setting them loose on a plethora of authentic language tasks in the classroom. To successfully teach children a language requires specific skills and intuitions that differ from those appropriate for adult teaching.

• Language learning and language acquisition
o The Hypothesis
o The Difference between learning and acquisition
o Assignment

• How do children learn English
o Practical approaches to teaching children
o The levels
o Language Development and context
o Assignment

Phase 2: The Skills
For decades English language teaching has identified the “four skills” – listening, speaking, reading and writing – of paramount importance. Listening and reading are considered to be receptive skills while speaking and writing as productive. Though at times these are taught in separate segments but there is a recent trend to integrate the skills. The language learners discover the differences and the interrelationship among these primary skills.

• Teaching Listening
o The importance of listening in the classroom
o Listening activities
o Self - Assignment

• Teaching Speaking
o Speaking in the classroom
o Student talk
o Introducing language
o Activities
o Self – Assignment

• Teaching Reading
o Approaches to reading
o Building confidence
o Different Material
o Assignment

• Teaching Writing
o Pre writing tasks
o Activities
o Some more ideas
o Assignment

Phase 3: Actual Teaching
Actual training begins when you are in the classroom. The subject matter that the teacher teaches is only one piece of the puzzle. There is a lot more that goes on in the classroom and outside it that affects the teaching and learning process.

• How to handle mixed groups
o Mixed groups
o Helpful strategies
o Group work
o Assignment

• Class Management
o The teacher
o The room
o Rules
o Working in groups
o Self-Assignment – not to be submitted

• Lesson Planning
o The need to plan
o Different ways of planning
o The framework
o When things go wrong
o Assignment

Phase 4: Tools
Teacher- centered approaches fail to treat the children as ‘whole’ people. The teaching is usually rational and is primarily aimed at the children’s intellect. There is an assumption that real learning occurs when the children are serious. How wrong this is!!

• Materials in the classroom
o Things to make
o Things to buy
o Assignment

• Stories, games, songs, chants
o How to use stories
o Games – some ideas
o The importance of songs and chants
o Self-Assignments – not to be submitted

Phase 5: That’s right!
Correction and evaluation are important components in the educational world. In every learning experience there comes a time to pause and take stock, to put our focal processes to their best use and to demonstrate skills and knowledge. Unfortunately students view this process of correction and evaluation with a lot of apprehension and it is up to us as teachers to make it a positive experience.

• Correction techniques
o Look at error differently
o Ways of error correction
o Assignment

• Evaluation techniques
o The meaning
o Purpose
o Formative assessment
o The continuous system
o Assignment

TEFL Education will guide and assist you in finding a EFL / TEFL Job after you have completed the course. This includes the following support services:
o Resume/CV preparation
o Information on likely sources of EFL Vacancies
o Job guidance counseling
o Job search and application

Course fees and Certification

For TEYL course: online learning only for US$175

However an existing ESL teacher training certificate (if any) such as the TESOL, CELTA, etc will fetch you a handsome discount on your course fee. E-learning teaching then will come for US$150 only.

The package would comprise of:
o Online learning
o Online Tutor
o Assignment and evaluation online
o Final test online


As you complete each phase there are assignments to be completed and sent online. The tutors evaluate the same and return it to you with necessary feedback. It is a continuous evaluation system without a formal examination at the end of the course. This helps you monitor your progress and clarify any doubts that you may have.

As it may take some time to arrange for all the on-site visits, students, class observations, etc. you should begin the planning process early. Consider the academic schedule in your community and when and how you will make the initial contacts.

If you wish and if you live close to an existing TEFL Education training center in Thailand, you may contact the center director (begin your inquiry with ) to request permission to visit the site to help you with your initial set-up. However, as this is a self-access program, you are responsible to complete the work independently.

Chat session can be arranged if you have any queries related to the topic/chapter.

You can email your query, which will be answered within 24hrs by your online tutor.

Finally you will receive your TEYL certificate.
