“Motivating Young ESL Learners”
/ By: LIELLANI LOE E. ARDIENTE/
Young learners need to be motivated. As a teacher, it is a daunting task for me to teach English to people with different personalities, cultures, norms and ways of accepting English as their second language. In my class, I use varieties of activities to make learning fun. Activities that boost their interest like fun games, listening to educational music, charts, and so on. Through these, I’m able to make the atmosphere conducive to learning. Gestures and any form of language are applied as a form of communication especially for low-learners. As a teacher of young ESL learners, I strongly believe that it needs to have a high degree of patience so that they would be able to digest the lesson well.
