This session will explore strategies to help teachers promote higher engagement in the KS4 MFL classroom, with a particular focus on the independent use of the target language by students, in both speaking and writing. We will look at some creative ideas as well as how to incorporate more cultural aspects as an integral and captivating part of lessons.
Julie Hall is a teacher of MFL and Deputy Head of Sixth Form at Ponteland High School. She delivers training both in the North East and nationally to encourage the spontaneous use of th target language in the classroom, as well as in curriculum design.

This year’s ALL Yorkshire’s Winter Series will again take a blended approach. Some of the sessions will take place at King Edward VII School, whereas some will be offered on zoom.
The face-to-face sessions will allow us to engage with inspirational speakers and each other, discussing strategies and resources for language teaching, sharing best practice, exploring old and new ideas, as well allowing room for informal chats and exchanges.
Offering sessions on Zoom allows us to invite speakers from further afield for whom it would be impractical to travel to us and at the same time offering part of our programme to teachers from all over the country, not just those who live in and around Sheffield.
All sessions will start at 17:30, and for those which take place at King Edward VII School there is also an opportunity for colleagues to meet up beforehand for an informal chat over a cup of tea or coffee.
