spotlight-on-learning-styles

Spotlight on Learning Styles by Marjorie Rosenberg focuses on how we learn rather than what we learn. It sheds light on our personal learning preferences and what we can do to learn and to teach more successfully – so that: teachers discover the characteristics of their own teaching styles, learners discover the characteristics of their own learning styles and teachers and learners can apply this knowledge to the classroom.

Challenging Children by Henk van Oort recognises that teaching young learners is as rewarding as it is challenging. Young learners demand special attention and stimulation if they are to learn effectively. Lessons need to be planned and delivered in such a way that pupils hardly notice that they are learning a new language.

The main aim of Challenging Children is to activate their linguistic abilities, generate vocabulary and arouse their interest in the learning process.
