Abstract

The recent events in pre-primary education included the implementation of a new Project-Based Learning standard, and with that in mind, the methods of teaching English in public preschools needed to be adapted as well. Learning English in preschool is completely contextual. This talk will show English teachers where to find new ideas, how to adapt the activities so that they can be used with very young learners from 3 to 6 years old, and so on. We will compare the new and old methods of work, exchange experiences, and based on examples, try to come up with our own creative solutions.

Is curiosity the key to professional development?
