The data for this project will be collected in two ways:
- An online / paper-based survey
- Case studies.
Together, these data will shed light on what teachers do in their TEYL classrooms and why they do it. They will also uncover similarities and differences between different contexts and practices and identify features of good practice in local classrooms.
An online / paper-based survey is being conducted with teachers from around the world to collect background information about the teachers who are teaching English to young learners and their contexts and classrooms.
If you are a primary / elementary school teacher of English to 7-11 year olds and would like to contribute to this project, complete our questionnaire. It should only take about 15 minutes to complete and your answers are
completely confidential. In some cases, answers maybe used as summaries in which no
individual’s answer can be identified.

Case studies of individual teachers will be carried out in five different countries on different continents. Teachers will be invited to participate because they are highly qualified and experienced and their skills in teaching young learners are regarded as excellent by employers, peers, or academics who know them.
Apart from the five main case studies, we are also interested in talking to teachers of English to 7-11 year olds from many different countries. If you would like to share your experiences in more detail, please contact a member of the research team.
