This unit gave a good overview of pedagogical approaches to teaching young learners as well as information on classroom organization, such as the way desks can be arranged. Important skills were covered, productive skills, speaking and writing and receptive skills, listening and reading. The unit ends by breaking up the age group into two in order to point out the differences at which students learn, for example, a five year old is much more likely to dance and sing to learn language than a twelve year old. There are several suggestions on how to teach these two different age groups.
