In this session, we will focus on what mindfulness is and how to transfer mindfulness training and techniques to our English lessons to create an area for kids where they feel truly in flow while acquiring the language. The trainer will share tips for incorporating mindfulness techniques into the curriculum by using stories, visuals and routines as tools to support English acquisition and enrich the program.
