CIRINO, Dayane Rita de Souza  e  DENARDI, Didie Ana Ceni. Is there room for the teaching of English to children in languages college course’s curriculum?. Semin., Ciênc. Soc. Hum. [online]. 2019, vol.40, n.2, pp. 209-224. ISSN 1679-0383.

New English teaching contexts are being manifested in our time. Teaching English for kids has grown significantly in recent years. Although, it seems there is a gap in the English teacher´s education because English/Portuguese Language Courses prepare teachers to teach English for the four final years on Elementary School II and the three levels on High School, while the Pedagogy Course has the aim to educate teachers who work at Children Education, first four years of Elementary School I, with general subjects, but not to teach this foreign language (FERNANDEZ; RINALDI, 2009). Considerng these complains, we question: a) Could it be Language Course the responsable to educate English teachers to children?; b) To what extent, are the Language Course curriculums effectively contributing for new practices in the classrooms? Therefore, this article has as an objective to present an analysis of two curriculums of two Language Courses of Federal Institutions located in the southwest Paraná, attempting to identify, it it is possible, rooms which cane the English teaching/learning for Children Education.
