This guidebook developed naturally to aid my teachers atour language school but quickly grew into more than a school resource guide for newly qualified or inexperienced young learner teachers. This guidebook has been designed to assist teachers with the teaching of young learners,whether you are teaching in an English speaking country or where English is considered a second or foreign language. The guidebook is also suitable for those teachers which have limited experience as a young learner teacher or for those teachers which already have some experience. Many of the ideas shared in this guide has been through theresult of direct experience as well as learning the hard way:what was considered successful and what had not been quite so successful in the classroom.
