‘On being ‘Outstanding for OFSTED’ Tim Crapper, Head of French at Aylesbury Grammar School, part of an MFL department rated ‘outstanding’ by OFSTED in April 2012.  Tim says: 'We regarded and regard ourselves as ‘normal’, so I hope this talk will be both informative and reassuring.  We teach French, German, Spanish, Italian, Japanese within the MFL family, and Latin is also taught.' We invited him after hearing his engaging, convincing and 'outstanding' talk in 2012, and are delighted he can join us in London

 

'Speaking spontaneously in the MFL Classroom' Dr Colin Christie IoE lecturer in Languages in Education, subject leader for the PGCE Languages course and well-known speaker with a gently persuasive manner, will look at simple techniques to encourage learners to speak spontaneously in the target language. He will also consider classroom contexts in which the target language can be used. Examples will be in French.

1055 – 11.45

'Practical solutions for all' René Koglbauer, ALL President Elect will share a variety of teaching strategies which can be used by ALL our language community!  We are honoured that René is travelling all the way from the north to join us as he prepares for his 2-year stint at the top!

11.45 – 12.15 

Comfort break / top-up of coffee / chance to ‘network’ / view info sent from corporate members, ALL, Language Institutes and our sponsors. Share views with your President Elect!

'Speaking spontaneously in the MFL Classroom' (see above)

 

Enrich your curriculum.  Liz Fotheringham, ALL London committee member, teacher and trainer How can less widely taught languages be introduced to enrich both the whole-school and languages curriculum?  Renowned for her comprehensive approach, Liz will look at practical teaching strategies and tools that can be applied to any language, whether less widely taught or not.  She will take Chinese as a case study.

1.05 –1.30

British Academy Schools Language Awards - Anne Breivik will share information about how to get money for promoting languages.  Participants will be offered refreshments and inspiration to stimulate you at the end of a packed morning!
