Watch Herbert Puchta's presentation given at the E-merging Forum 5 in March 2015.

In his presentation "Teaching very young learners — what's hot, and what not" Herbert looks at research into the optimal learner age and the Critical Period Hypothesis, and discusses why the critical voices concerning the teaching of English of very young learners in non-immersion educational contexts need to be taken seriously.

Herbert Puchta is a co-author of a few extremely successful course books for children published by Cambridge University Press, including Playway to English, Super Minds, More! and English in Mind.
