Details This workshop consisted of four weekend sessions and over 12 hours of instruction about teaching methods geared towards language acquisition. Drawing from past experiences training teachers for ECC's Kids English World program, our workshop consisted of training and hands on practice. Teachers participated in interactive exercises to develop methodology for implementation in their classes. The focus was on techniques used for modeling, non-verbal communication, songs, visual resources, and game play in an English-only environment for effective second language acquisition.
