Telling your young learners that they are going to learn all about the ‘past simple’ this morning, will be met with absent-minded stares and is unlikely to fill them with excitement. However, most schools and parents do expect young learners’ teachers to enable learners to get their ‘head around’ grammar rules. In this webinar, we will explore how we can design grammar-focused lessons that are age-appropriate, fully engage our learners and encourage them to interact with the grammar in a meaningful context.
