Teaching English to Beginners

Dyas Ayu Anindya


English as a foreign language/international language should be
introduced and taught to children from early age. Here the writer is
limiting only to the children whose age ranges from 6 to 12 years old,
those who are sitting in primary school. Young learners at their tender
age have the flexibility in their physical as well as their mental domain to
feel and make sense of a language. These children enjoy fun activities that
will fit to their unique playing world. In their learning activities, listening
and speaking will take most of their hours, without neglecting other
language skills, i.e. reading and writing. The materials of the lessons will
vary depending on their language competence. In teaching young
learners a teacher should take into account: teaching materials, class
activities, speed, teaching aids, etc. In short, teaching English to young
learners need a thorough preparation and planning.
