Theme: Perhaps one of the most important aspects of teaching young learners is classroom management. With a working system in place and a good class atmosphere, children can develop their language skills with confidence and enjoy their learning. Without such a system, lessons can be a struggle for teachers and students alike.

This session will look at ideas for establishing ground rules and a rapport with young learners from the very first lesson as well as ways to keep the momentum going throughout the school year. Drawing on his own experiences, the presenter will demonstrate the importance a student-centred approach incorporating their input along with their interests to help create a positive learning environment.
