As a teacher of young learners and teens, both at a Language School and at SME, my primary concern with the presentation is to talk about my experience using ludic activities as well as Howard Gardner´s Theory on Multiple Intelligences, which are truly effective in the English language learning process, and to demonstrate the several tools that may be used to turn the young learners and teens of today into the English Speakers hosts during the Olympic Games in Rio, taking advantage of the restlessness of early childhood and teenage years in the EFL classroom.
