~~Teaching very young learners (under 5s) can be particularly daunting for many teachers. For most it is the first time they have had to cope with children this young, and many are concerned or worried about how to approach the class.
Teaching very young learners can be a lot of fun and very rewarding however, there is no doubt that it presents a set of unique challenges. Young learners are not interested in English per se they are more focussed on having fun, playing games and being entertained.
Initially, most young learners are very shy of their new teacher; especially as to them the new teacher is a strange and scary looking foreigner. It is not uncommon for them to become fixed to their mothers and barely acknowledge your presence. One thing that works in your favour is that small children are innately curious and by making funny faces, silly noises etc will make them smile or laugh winning half the battle.

Most students will say that listening is difficult, if not actually admit that this is their weakest skill. The problem comes down to two main points. The first stems from the fact that the pace, choice of vocabulary, phrases, and grammar, and the inflection or intonation is completely determined by the speaker. The listener has only one chance to catch the meaning of a word or phrase. Comparisons can be made with reading, because the writer similarly determines the language. But students can easily re-read passages, consult a dictionary, and generally work at their own pace. There aren't any (or at least, many) re-dos when listening.

Seeing IELTS from an angle other than a university or visa requirement, I find that it's something that needs you to take the language learning fairly dynamically and put into effect some robust steps to incorporate English as a language of your day-to-day communication. A first timer in IELTS, specially if he is weak in English and still aims a 7 or more, has an extra mile to go where he needs to build an environment around him that supports his English language learning equally favorably as his core IELTS preparation. Over an analysis of why many IELTS students fail to get up to the higher side of the performance, I have realized that the shortcomings lie in the misorientation probably to see IELTS as a test and not as a course. Here is a 20-step performance booster to lead you towards a rocking 7-band score and achieve your dream IELTS result:
1. Consider IELTS a priority
2. Identify your level and the maximum duration you can afford to have for the preparation and practice
