A summary of Languages Today magazine content in 2015/16.
Featuring ideas for craft and language activities; creating portraits using Spanish words; and fashion teaching tips from Routes into Languages and the Backstage project.
We also went beyond the language classroom to explore links with linguistics; on a cultural journey through the whole school with ‘Our World Week’ at Middleton Primary School in Nottingham; and took a trip through our multicultural and multilingual cities.
Our Spring 2016 issue was a ‘learner autonomy’ special issue:
It’s all about how to encourage pupils to take control of their own learning, and become independent, autonomous learners.
We find out about the Language Futures approach – a very different model of language learning; hear about the hear about the ‘multilingual choice approach’ to language learning in South Australia; select our Best 10 ideas to support students with their language learning at home… and much more!
Our Summer 2016 issue is an ‘assessment / progress’ special issue:
In this issue, we looked back – at the impact of the Routes into Languages programme over the last ten years; its achievements, activities, events and partnerships – and we celebrate the many ways in which it has motivated young people to enjoy their language learning. However, we also looked forward – at assessment strategies, progression and achievement in Key Stages 2 and 3, and innovative ways in which colleagues are measuring progress.
Languages Today is packed full of advice, ideas and information – join us to receive the next issue!
