Should we even bother with teaching grammar in pre-school? Damien explores this question in more detail then looks at five different approaches, using an article from the May/June issue of MET alongside his own experiences.
In his latest series of vlogs for Pavilion ELT, Damien Herlihy is celebrating the release of the new look Modern English Teacher by focusing on the theme of each issue. Each episode explores a particular article from the issue, which Damien examines in more detail and relates to his own teaching context. We hope that you’ll be able to do the same – no matter where you are in the world!
In this episode, he looks at the theme ‘Young Learners' in the May/June 2022 issue. He focuses on the article “Teaching Grammar in Pre-School?” by Anka Zapart, which explores the importance of teaching structures to very young learners.
How is Damien’s series making you reflect on your own teaching? Let us know in the comments under the vlog or below our shares on the Pavilion ELT social media!
