How to teach the best VYL class - Activities, chants and props

Watch a recording of this webinar with Jenny Galligan, looking at teaching very young learners.

About the webinar

By the end of this webinar, participants will walk away with new activities, chants and props that they can bring straight away into their VYL classrooms. The session focuses on many different suggestions and ideas in each area, with an emphasis on low preparation. It covers practical, low prep or no-prep games and activities. Teachers will see how they can use chants and short songs to make transitions clear and fun for students, as well as learning some must-have props that will make their classes great fun.

Recorded on 20 October 2022

This webinar took place in October last year - if you joined then, you will have received an e-mail with the certificate details, as well as a link at the end of the webinar. I'm afraid we do not provide certificates for watching recordings of webinars.
