Abstract

Finding the best way to catch the attention of young EFL learners through effective classroom management by means of games, realia, role-playing and, drama is of great significance due to the fact that the world of young learners consists of visual images, pictures, and games, so they are under the bombardment of all these. They live in an age of visualization. Depending upon this, it will also be mentioned that how the ELF teachers will catch the attention of the young EFL learners, which is actually one of the problematic area in classroom management. The reason is that just standing in front of the classroom, and trying to teach something to the students make no sense right now, in the stark contrast, the students themselves want movement and action, and they would like to be much more involved in the class. Normally thinking, the learners is not roped to the class. However, the matter is that in order to learn regularly and peacefully, the students must feel themselves relaxed, they should be in peace, it shouldn’t be a kind of torture, and the teacher should vary the activities in the class so as to free from monotonous atmosphere. All of these things leave an impact on the students’ psychology and their motivational level either positively or negatively. Therefore, the main objective of the study is to depict how to motivate young EFL learners through effective classroom management by means of games, realia, role-playings, drama, and body language of the teacher. From this perspective, this study will focus on the sustainable development in the foreign language teaching and learning fundamentally for young EFL learners
