As experienced teachers and educators in the field of the English language acquisition, we were aware that every successful program needs to start off by understanding the needs, abilities and interests of today’s young learners. Taking all these parameters into consideration helped us recognize the children’s needs and determine what is necessary for them to learn.
Young readers are a sensitive group as they have to be guided through the process of acquiring literacy and at the same time they need to develop a love of learning. We have carefully planned all the activities and materials that support student learning, and have determined how to measure it. When we were planning our activities we had in mind not only our users’ age, skills and interests, but also what they should be able to do both at a certain point in the level and by the end of the level. And that is how the idea of devising a personalized learning path was born.
