Basic Concepts are the building blocks on which cognition and perception is built.

It is a method of teaching…to establish the basic foundations or building blocks in order for children to make sense of the environment around them.

For me the most effective aspect was the basic teaching model.  When I implemented the model I found that my learners were more focussed when I followed the steps of the model.

I feel very strongly that Basic Concepts should be introduced to all learners- this will give me the time to develop their conceptual language and increase their vocabulary and verbal fluency.

Training was out of this world. I would definitely recommend this training to everyone ...

Christel House Training, July 2014

I was very happy about my development on this course… often as teachers we do not pay attention to detail, but because of Basic Concepts I was aware of the lack of language use in my class. I am now using a different approach with my learners and being aware of the small details that make a big change in the way I teach and learners learn. Thank you for this eye opening course.
