    Age group problems

    Hello,
    I need some help from a seasoned ESL teacher please.
    .
    .
    I've been asked this question in an application form:
    .
    .
    What should you take into consideration when teaching English as a foreign language to these age groups?
    .
    3 to 6
    .
    7 to 10
    .
    11 to 16
    .
    17+
    .
    .
    Thanks for any ideas
    .

    Ages 3-6 Language Acquisition - these are the formative years in language acquistion - a child's cognitive maturity and his or her relationship with adults and children will be of importance. Physical development and lingual development; the development of the voice should be noted.


    11-16 - slang terms, English idioms that don't perfectly translate in the other language.
