C2 - Strategies Relating to Teaching Young Learners
(C2 - Teaching Young Learners)
In this module, we discuss the main issues related to the teaching of a foreign language, namely Greek, to young learners. These are examined in the general context of the relevant theory as well as of the debates and concerns that are directly related to the teaching of a second/foreign language to young learners.
Given that teachers are already familiar with the approaches in the methodology of teaching a foreign language, (an issue which is also examined in other modules of the program, such as the module: Teaching Grammar, Vocabulary and Pronunciation), this module exclusively focuses on teaching young children. Specifically, we discuss the teaching strategies as well as other important theoretical issues concerning the teaching of a foreign language to children.
