Teddy Talk is intended for children in the early stages of English language acquisition. It has proven results for quickly developing core vocabulary and self-confidence. EAL children in the ‘silent period’ will often start to speak after Teddy Talk sessions.
Sessions take about 15-20 minutes, and each session is built around a repeated, predictable framework that includes:
- Rules of good sitting, listening and looking
- A Hello Song and greeting
- Some games
- A Story
- A Goodbye song and farewell
