Language World 2017

Language World 2017

What our delegates said:

"A fantastic two days packed with practical ideas and a variety of inspiring workshops. It also provided a fabulous opportunity to network with people who all share a common passion for language teaching"

"...discussing with colleagues, meeting other people, making connections, seeing my language friends, amount of information, practical ideas to apply. The new ALL Head of Dept book. EVERYTHING!"

"I always love the real 'buzz' of enthusiastic people. Wonderful opportunity to meet up with old friends and gather ideas, as well as look out for speakers for our branch. Adored the Plenary with Bill Watkin: proof that linguists develop excellent communication skills and a sense of humour!"

"Such fun! What a great idea to get everyone up and dancing. I would definitely use these lessons."

"I most enjoyed the ‘Tune into Translation’ and the ‘Engaging Activities to Help Progression from KS3 to KS4’ sessions, because they gave so many ideas for making things more interesting. I feel like I’ve really added to my toolkit and I’m feeling so inspired"

"Having the opportunity to share ideas with others. Great to meet other languages colleagues. Being able to learn new things. I thoroughly enjoyed the two days"

"... being able to talk to speakers and members of ALL as well as other teachers. Feeling like I can get more involved with ALL. Very interesting talks and updates"

" The talks and workshops were really informative, as a NQT I have come away with some great ideas for resources and strategies as well as a greater understanding of the current climate for language teachers. I have also had the opportunity to meet with exhibitors, meet local representatives and discover what and who is out there in terms of resources."

Language World 2016

What our delegates said:

"As always, it has been an inspiring, invigorating, and fun couple of days. I have learnt so much, come away with lots of ideas to implement and talked to so many lovely people! It is definitely the best CPD around and great value for money"

"Very varied and thought provoking. I have finished the 2 days with a very long list of ideas and links to resources and follow up. This should keep me busy for the next year until Language World 2017!"

"All the sessions I attended were excellent and I am taking away lots of wonderful ideas and techniques and am now feeling a little less anxious about the oncoming curriculum changes. Thank you to everyone for sharing materials!"

"As always packed full with super speakers and ideas. It would be unfair to try to pick out favourite sessions, thoroughly enjoyed all of them. Always lovely to meet new people and exchange ideas. Delighted to see so many new young faces. Everyone smiles at each other at Language World!"

"Fantastic speakers, ideas and inspiration. Friendly atmosphere. Thank you so much for a fabulous and enriching day. A fantastic day. Thank you."

"A huge thank you for organising my place at last week’s conference. I do blame you entirely for my lack of sleep, as I have so many ideas running through my mind now!"

"This was my first conference as I’d never before dared asking if my school would let me come. I have enjoyed every minute of it and found it extremely refreshing, challenging and inspiring. It was very daunting to come on my own as I did not know anyone. I found it a bit difficult on the first day in that respect. Everyone was very friendly, it was very interesting, reassuring and made this conference even more useful as I felt I could ask any questions. I think this should be compulsory training for any MFL teacher. Very knowledgeable, useful facilities, lots of sharing. Thank you, see you next year!"

Language World 2015

What our delegates said:

"I came away inspired and full of ideas for future planning. Both days were very inspiring and got me fired-up and reaffirmed my enthusiasm that language learning is healthy. I connected with colleagues I did not know before and those I already knew, it was great to have quality time with them, in a different environment and for a different purpose. All the speakers I listened to were engaging, very helpful and talented within their field. The people behind the scenes were equally excellent, everything was done to make the conference a great experience. Thank you for an amazing two-day conference"

"Thoroughly enjoyed the conference - great atmosphere. Fabulous organisation and great sessions"

"I thoroughly enjoyed all sessions I attended. I thoroughly enjoyed presenting too! Attending LW2015 is like having an intensive week-end away seeing dear friends again, meeting new ones, sharing, feeling inspired and a good boogie! I would not be the teacher I am without it!"

"Highlights as always were meeting up with old friends and networking with new ones, as well as putting faces to names from the Languages in Primary Schools Facebook group"

"The whole conference was amazing! All the speakers were inspirational and I met so many like-minded (i.e. passionate and enthusiastic) people that I can honestly say that I loved every minute! I got so many ideas which I can share within my primary hub and made so many connections... It was also great to meet people you interact with via email, twitter or facebook and find they are even better in real life! It was worth every penny, I cannot recommend it enough... Roll on Rugby!"
