Language Learning Strategies
Language Futures has been designed to foster deep learner engagement and to enable students to take responsibility for their own learning. In order to become independent learners, students need to develop the necessary strategies and skills to lead their own learning and become resilient linguists.
These skills will include planning, analysing and evaluating ways of learning; being able to communicate; ways to practise the language; strategies to support memorisation; and the ability to apply their prior knowledge.
Below are a number of resources already trialled by Language Futures schools.
ALL's Support for Languages
ALL’s Language Networks support teachers and students across a range of languages and contain classroom resources, project ideas, student competitions, teacher events as well as guidance for schools. Explore our pages for Arabic, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Mandarin, Russian, Spanish and a variety of World Languages.
Language Learning Strategies offers advice to students on how to develop the necessary skills to lead their own learning and become resilient linguists.
The Immersion Chart is a useful tool for students to plan and track progress in their chosen language.
