The secrets of language learning Language learning – Croatian, Danish, French, Hindi, Italian, Swedish, now Spanish – has been part of my daily routine for two years.

How Do I Teach Family Vocabulary? A nice normal family One of the first questions I was asked in any conversation in India was kya aapake bache hain? (“do you have children?”) and, pre-stepfatherhood, I quickly learned to say mujhe koee bache nahin hai. This happens anywhere. Primary Programme of Study With the introduction of MFL as a compulsory subject across all KS2 year groups from September 2014, the UCL Institute of Education Confucius Institute developed a Programme of Study to assist primary school teachers to introduce and teach Mandarin Chinese in the classroom. In this new version, released in June 2016, the language content and general rationale remain the same but the formatting has been changed and a far greater cultural content has been developed. The aim of this revision is both to enrich the students’ experience of China and Chinese, and also to make the programme more accessible to non-Mandarin-speaking classroom teachers by illustrating the subject’s rich cross-curricular potential. The new cultural content is designed to link to curriculum topics in other subject areas such as History, Geography, Literacy, Art & Design and Religious Knowledge. The PoS has been further redesigned to include a separate scheme for the introduction of Chinese characters.

ALL Connect: KS2 Speaking Welcome to the ALL Connect KS2 Speaking Module There are five themed modules for KS2 teachers of languages and two KS2-KS3 modules. The modules are not sequential, and are presented here in four formats: A Powerpoint presentation for use in a training sessionA pdf for Trainers to use in preparing for a training session; this includes the notes pages that accompany the Powerpoint screensA Powerpoint presentation for self–access by a practising teacher or trainee (this version does not include discussion and has reduced notes) in case you wish to view the Powerpoint separately from the NotesA pdf of the Self Access notes page – you might like to access this version in order to have the Notes visible at the same time as the screens. The materials of this module are aimed at an audience of teachers who will be teaching pupils at KS2. Languages of exemplification in the materials and follow-up modules are French, German and Spanish.

Languages at Michaela School Wembley London Modern Foreign Languages Language teaching at Michaela is like nothing you have seen elsewhere. We don’t use pictures, PowerPoints, games, pair work or group work. Neither do we do large discrete blocks of grammar. “Today we are “doing” the Perfect Tense.” are words you will never hear at Michaela. We also take a very pragmatic stance on the use of target language.
