About this ExpertTrack

Teaching English to children while they’re still learning their mother tongue is a challenging but rewarding experience. On this ExpertTrack, you’ll learn how you can help children get the most out of a language learning experience.

This course for parents and practitioners will explore how young children learn English and investigate many more aspects of early childhood learning and development.

British Council educators will share their insights and experiences, so that you can learn how to best talk to young children; how to create the best environment for them to learn English as an additional language and how to monitor their progress.

Through articles, videos, and discussions, you’ll hear from both early childhood experts and parents, and see first-hand how young children learn inside an early years’ classroom. Along the way, you’ll gather tips, advice, and downloadable resources that will help you teach English as a foreign language to children.
