1.1 Primary languages - where are we now?

This session will present key findings from research, together with

suggestions from practice nationally. It will consider major challenges

still facing us as we seek to implement the National Languages

Strategy and indicate how we are making progress towards 2010.

Using songs, Brain Gym, cross-curricular projects, games and ICT,

tapping their feet, clapping their hands and joining in! Come along and

join in yourself in this interactive session. Be prepared to have fun.

2.1 Innovative ways of using ICT for Spanish teaching

This session attempts to explore ways of using ICT in the teaching of

‘normal’ teacher.

Nick Mair, Dulwich College, London

2.2 The motivational potential of Spanish

Nottingham Trent University has provided a number of opportunities

for learning Spanish in the local community, to groups from preschool

children to adults with various disabilities. The speakers

discuss the appeal of Spanish and how it has been used to motivate

learners, using innovative approaches. They suggest how these can

be adapted for use by other teachers.

Mercedes Carbayo-Abengozar, Senior Lecturer in Spanish at

Nottingham Trent University and Jenny Norris, Manager of the
