How can we engage positively with the change in thinking in Language Teaching in England?
We are being told to reform what we teach and how we teach. Vincent will show how he has tried to out-do the reforms, by keeping a balance between carefully sequenced language, alongside developing pupils’ ability to use their language. Examples will be from KS3 French and KS4 Spanish, with discussion of the dilemma that we now all face in our planning for KS4.
Vincent Everett is Head of Department in a comprehensive school in Norfolk. He is a long-standing member of ALL and former elected member of the Executive Committee. He is known for his open and honest sharing of ideas and resources on twitter and on his blog, “The nice man who teaches languages.”

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.
