•Teenagers (perhaps especially the current need-to-know generation) like to be
seen as cool and up-to-date, so bring in topics of current interest from IT, sport,
entertainment and media, and English-speaking cultures that is personally
relevant to your learners.

TEACHING TEENAGERS
 Teenagers are starting to define their proper personalities
(sometimes it seems they have multiple personalities!) and
role-play activities can allow them to try to express
different feelings behind non-threatening, face-saving
masks.
 Part of growing up is taking responsibility for one's acts
and, in school, for one's learning, so a measure of learner
autonomy and individual choice can be helpful for
teenagers.
 It's amazing how some teenagers will have an almost
encyclopedic knowledge of a particular field, so let
individual students bring their outside interests and
knowledge into the classroom through cross-curricular
work.
TEACHING TEENAGERS
 Variety – including surprise and humor – is the spice
of classroom life (perhaps particularly with teenagers
and their infamous short attention span), so try out
different warmers, starters and fillers to change the
pace and enliven the organization of your lessons.
 Teenagers are discovering their bodies so use
movement by giving students an opportunity to move
around during class.
 Teaching in secondary school often means teaching
multi-level classes, but effective classroom
management can help even with very large classes.
TEACHING TEENAGERS
 Use of the mother tongue can not only steer a whole
class activity away from misunderstanding,
confrontation and potential discipline problems
(always a risk with teenagers), but also help avoid
pressure on an individual by removing the impression
that one person is being tested and put on the spot.
 Games can provide not only purposeful contexts in
which to use language but they also stimulate
interaction, provide competition and are fun – as long
as rules are clear and clearly followed by all
participants.
TEACHING TEENAGERS
 Project work offers each individual a chance to use
their individual talent to do something personally
meaningful and motivating with the language they are
learning – and the resulting posters and other visuals
can be displayed around the classroom (just as
teenagers decorate their rooms at home).
 It seems that all teenagers are interested in pop songs,
so exploit that interest by bringing music – and the
feelings that can be expressed through songs – into the
classroom.
