Hello I am a teacher of EAL in an International school in The

> practical and the language simple but there is the suggestion that
> the non-native speakers receive extra help outside the larger class
> group for English. I would be grateful of any feedback best wishes,

May I ask if you use a course book ?
I used to teach 4-6 year old children in German Kindergarten. I used a very good books from MacMillan.
4-5 -year-old I used Patch the Puppy and then Little Bugs.
Hope this helps
