Teaching English to Young Learners

"It's not only a good means to reflect on teaching strategies but a great opportunity to share, exchange, discuss and debate on thought provoking topics."
Caroline Mazaud, June 2016

Personal language development concentrates on oral fluency and colloquial English. Methodology concentrates on practical ideas for teaching younger learners.
