Get some ideas on how to design and implement nursery teaching sessions by reading this assignment and also listening to the recorded teaching sessions carried out a month ago in a Private Nursery School in Nea Smyrni (Athens). Teaching English to Very Young Learners is an area worth exploring!! I am grateful to the Lord for the excellent comments of my professor in the Open University.
…While trying to make grammar theory and rules short and enjoyable as the young students are required to have something written in their notebooks. The tradition in the Greek reality is still so strong – the use of L1 required by the Greek educational system and the time for grammar explanation and application being so short. Course plans are to be strictly followed; the textbooks have to be completed by May. The teacher’s skills: to combine knowledge, comprehension, practice and production in almost no time at all, as grammar structures appear in every lesson. At least technology makes the whole thing a bit more appealing to students through the use of IWB (Interactive Whiteboard), PPT (Power Point) presentations and online games.
