Smalltalk Languages have announced their schedule of nationwide courses for session 2017-18 and is offering an early booking discount of 20% on the following courses if booked by 30 June 2017.
With language proficiency and entitlement high on the educational agenda more and more staff are beginning to recognise the importance of introducing a language at an early age.
This course is aimed at nursery/primary staff who are currently introducing French/Spanish as part of their curriculum for excellence/1+2 languages programme or intend to do so. Suitable for both complete beginners and people with prior knowledge of the language, the main focus of the course will be on language learning and practical methodology.
On the day participants will look at language from the children’s perspective. They will be shown how to build both their own and the children’s confidence in language skills while learning the importance of adapting and manipulating language for maximum effect. They will also be encouraged to take part in a wide variety of fun games and activities (including singing) designed to show the best ways to introduce, consolidate and develop language learning in the classroom. There will also be an opportunity to work in groups to discuss best practice and review current resources to compliment classroom teaching. At the end of the course participants will be able to return to their learning environment confident, enthusiastic and ready to promote basic French/Spanish.
