TEFL to young learners is a challenge for pre-service teachers in non-home English countries. They should prepare to teach English while they also use English as a foreign language. Pre-service teachers focused on mastering language skills, whereas many preparatory processes they have to ensure before they take into the English teaching profession. Therefore, in this article, the authors assert that pre-service teachers should master linguistics proficiency, pedagogy knowledge, and literature as the means used in teaching English. Some theories and research findings have been discussed in teaching English to EFL children. However, the scope of discussion on pre-service teachers' preparation is fragmented among the uses of language skill and teaching discipline. Even they rarely explain how to teach language in a fun way through literary works. With a comprehensive literature review method, this article focuses more on conveying the author's ideas and thoughts discussing EFL pre-service teachers' preparation in teaching English to young learners with the Popperian approach. The popperian approach is considered to be more dynamic and open to ideas and opinions on policies in various fields, one of which is education.</p> Yuli Astutik Fabiola Dharmawanti Kurnia Ali Mustofa Copyright (c) 2021 Authors 2021-02-26 2021-02-26 3 1 18 35 10.24903/bej.v3i1.707 The Use of Data-Driven Dialogue to teach English <p>The term data-driven data-driven dialogue (DDD) has emerged recently as a valuable tool for organizing classroom discussion of any predicted lessons and monitoring students' learning process in the classroo&nbsp; O’Brian, Nocon, and Sands (2010).
