I have found this video example of a lesson teaching Very Young Learners French. John Bach, from Canada uploaded it on Vimeo for teacher training purposes, but later it was deleted and re-edited a bit by www.learner.org
To help us understand the French lesson, for those of us who are not that good at French, the lesson is also subtitled in English.
I would like to use this video now, as part of the Very Young Learners Course starting today.
However, I think it is a great idea to watch it and think of the questions below for those who are interested in teaching VYL in general.
So for those of you who participate in the course I'd like you to watch it and reflect on the following:
1. What are some ideas you have learnt from this lesson?
2. How can you apply them in your own teaching of Very Young Learners?
3. How is your teaching context different and what differences would this bring into your teaching of VYL group as opposed to Mr Scott's?
4. Is there anything that Mr Scott says about the teaching of VYL or anything in his lesson that you would disagree with?
Please leave a comment for all of us to share our ideas and learn from each other.
