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.
