3 FUN AND EFFECTIVE WAYS TO DAILY TEACH YOUR OWN KIDS ENGLISH (AGES BIRTH TO 8; ALL PARENTS) SATURDAY 11.10-11.55
As teachers, we tend to rely on a standard curriculum when it comes to teaching young children English within the classroom environment. However, it is quite different at home and when it involves our own children. On one hand, we don’t necessarily want to use a structured curriculum at home, but on the other hand, many of us tend to feel disadvantaged without it. In this workshop, you will learn 3 very simple but very effective strategies that are targeted towards helping young children learn English in a fun and casual way. In addition, the three techniques have a wonderful secondary benefit in strengthening the bonding you already have with your child.
