This course is aimed at nursery/primary staff who are
introducing French into their early years/primary
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
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.
