THE LANGUAGE MAGICIAN

THE LANGUAGE MAGICIAN is an online assessment tool for language learning at primary school level, aimed at improving language teaching and assessment of linguistic competencies in the primary classroom across Europe. With in-built tools for the teacher, the interactive game is fun for pupils and helps teachers measure learners’ progression in the foreign language.

THE LANGUAGE MAGICIAN will be launched at Language World (23-24 March 2018).  Among a variety of activities, there will be a Major Talk on Friday 23 March 2018 and training sessions for Primary Hub leaders on the use of the game, so that they can spread the word.  Teachers can explore and have a go at the game during the conference.

Free training events will be run across the country to give you the opportunity to come and learn about the game and will cover a practical session on making simple animations in MFL lessons. Find an event near year from the listing below.
