“In this investigation we explore LEI trainees issues during their teaching experience with children based on the different issues they face. The principal topics that we approach in this document are language acquisition, classroom management, motivation and teaching strategies. We also discuss issues of lesson plan, methods and materials for teaching children that may help understand how children learn and improve our understanding of ELT in general.
The participants in this study are LEI students in the Faculty of Languages. Their age ranges between 20 and 25 years old they were in the 6th semester of the BA in ELT at the moment of this investigation. We administered a questionnaire that helped us collect information to understand some problems that they have had when teaching.”
