This lesson helpfully contrasts and compares the different needs of young learners and adults. For example, a young beginner in English learning will have different motivations for studying than an adult beginner. Generally speaking, an adult beginner will be intrinsically motivated to learn English for reasons such as employment benefits. Meanwhile, a young learner usually requires further external motivation to continue studying in the form of an interesting classroom environment, fun teacher, and interesting work material (of course, adult students benefit from these aspects as well). It is integral for a teacher to be aware of the needs and wants of their students and to plan appropriate lessons that not only meet these needs and wants, but also encourage a healthy curiosity that will motivate their students. Some other factors to consider besides their age and level, is also the size of the classroom. One-on-one teaching will require activities and lessons in which the teacher also becomes the student's partner in place of other students. As well, the teacher will have to make considerations based on whether the class is monolingual or multilingual, and how this will effect student-student and student-teacher communication during activities and lessons.
