In order to achieve success in teaching English to children, especially school age, teachers must have knowledge about young learners, characteristics of young learners, learning styles of young learners, techniques of teaching, and how to develop learning materials for young learners. So that by understanding the characteristics of children's learning, how students learn in class, teachers can choose appropriate techniques and can develop learning materials appropriately according to the needs and development of students.
