Next Group:
Affective Language Learning with Young Learners 
To be announced soon!

Are you passionate about teaching English to Young Learners?
Would you like to understand and nurture your students'  emotions while they are learning?
Then I invite you to join us in the Affective Language Learning Re-love-ution!

The Affective Language Learning Certificate was created to empower educators with postures and practices that foster caring, supporting, and energizing language learning environments. The course is the result of over 20 years living, studying, discussing, and sharing how positive emotions boost students' self-esteem, confidence, and motivation to learn a foreign language.

The Certificate is a three-day course composed of the six following workshops:  

Affective Language Learning: how can language teachers promote learning through the integration of emotion, cognition, and language? Which pedagogical practices bring harmony and productivity to the language class? In this session we will learn, experience, and discuss how presence, communication, respect, and power sharing can create effective learning environments. Check a post about it. 

Relaxing, Warm ups, and Wrap ups: here we will learn over a 100 hundred short activities that relax, concentrate, and energize young learners in different moments of the class. Check a post about it. Check a post about it. 

Affective Resources for Language Learning: here we will explore, practice, and create how cards, rods, pictures, games, and jazz chants can be used affectively with young learners. Check a post about it. 

Proactive Discipline Management: discipline management can be seen as a chess game instead of a tug of war when issues are seen through a different paradigm. In this session we will explore how ecological factors, antecedents strategies, and behavioral approaches can prevent a great number of indiscipline problems from happening. Check a post about it. 

Storytelling and Affective Language Learning: here we will experience, discuss, and practice how  stories can be lived affectively and effectively to promote language learning with young learners. Check a post about it.   

Puppeteering and Affective Language Learning: puppets allow students to use, create, experience language in different realities. The spontaneity, creativity, and pride lived in the process boost student motivation and language learning. In this session we will build your own puppets, practice manipulative techniques, and explore a great number of ways in which puppets can be invited to class. Check a post about it.
