Multisensory Language Teaching to Young Learners

Introducing Letterland and its multisensory approach based on our Fix-it Phonics material.
Focusing on the multisensory component and using the example of one of the letter characters Lesley will explore some practical ideas about how to make learning fun whether you teach in the classroom setting or in a remote, virtual context and how to connect that teaching with ideas parents can support at home.

Lesley conducts dozens of hands-on training sessions and meetings with EFL teachers in different countries in Europe, America, the Middle East, Asia and Africa every year, both offline and online.
Oksana Yaverbaum, Letterland representative in Russia and teacher-trainer, Moscow - the host of this workshop.

Planning your EFL online lessons for Young Learners

Letterland’s use of characters transfers abstract alphabet shapes into human-like figures and taps into a wide range of attention-holding strategies to help capture all children’s imagination and motivate their learning no matter if you conduct your lessons in class or online. Our teachers have proved that.

However, online teaching has its differences and challenges vs teaching in a classroom setting. Oksana will share tips and ideas for practical online lessons for Young Learners starting with its planning.
