For most teachers of young learners, classroom management is a big issue. Our latest teaching tip with David Rixon looks more closely at this topic and offers practical advice on how best to manage classes of YL students.



 I am that teatcher, it were very useful tips for me and for our classes,but could you write the text from video here? it would be nice, thanks

Hi Sveta,
For unscripted videos we usually don't provide the audioscript, although this is something we could perhaps think about for the future. Good to hear you found the tips useful!

Hi Im a new member .thanks for your great site .I have problem watching the videos .I tried several programs but It didnt work.please help me.


Hi Haleh
Sorry to hear you're having problems. The video is working fine here. Could you try again, using a different browser and tell us if the problem continues?

Hi there, this video is exciting. it teach us, the teachers, how to deal with some some problems occured in our classroom. i like the way the teacher put "00:01:09' on the board. David really has a good time management. The way he implied the 'put your hands up' rule made the students realize that it is important to be discipline. people will appreciate you if you take the rules. the reward and the stamps were so creative. I just lack of one thing. The teacher's smile ^.^ thanks for the video. its inspiring!

Overall, very effective tips and strategies for dealing with YLs in a class.

Heard you mention the word "Rubber" in your class and was wondering if this was a slip as this word has negative connotations the world round.

If we are striving hard to teach our kids English that is understood and accepted worldwide, then don't you think we should be more careful when choosing our words, in order to save them being embarrassed in an English speaking country. Especially when this is picked up from a native speaker of English.

The problem here is that rubber is the accepted word in classroom usage throughout the UK, you obviously are looking at this from an American perspective, it doesn’t have negative connotations in the UK at all, as your “ rubber” is then called a condom . There is no mix up with the words in English English only American style English..

Thank you David for sharing tips on classroom management. They are certainly very useful.

Nice tips, but have you ever tried to teach in a classroom with about 45 students where the classes are just 40 minutes? Has anyone got any idea how to manage and deal with in such situations?
