Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

The AMFLA (Accelerated Modern Foreign Language Aquisition) method has been developed to provide primary schools with an invaluable resource for delivering a modern language at Key Stage 2 from September 2014, in time to fulfil primary schools’ statutory responsibility.

Delegates will come away with:

· experience of ‘live learning’ a modern language with real pupils, taught by  Maggie Morgan MBE, from St Paul’s Primary School , Brighton;

· a DVD, for future reference, illustrating Maggie Morgan’s expert pedagogy;

· a complete ‘Language Awareness’ course for Key Stages 1 and 2, to complement the AMFLA materials for modern language teaching, suitable for non-linguist teachers;

· two programmes of study and their resources, for French or Spanish, sufficient to cover a full term for classes in Years 3, 4, 5 and 6;

· numerous links to additional resources;

· the opportunity to subscribe to additional programmes of study in the future, in order to cover the full Key Stage 2 modern language curriculum;

· models for staffing modern language teaching collaboratively;

· a tool for school self-evaluation of outstanding practice in primary language policy and practice;

· the opportunity to join the AMFLA schools network dedicated to the further development of innovative practice in progressive language  learning in the primary school and transition to KS3.


Evidence underpinning this approach

AMFLA draws on compelling research into the teaching of English in  European countries, successful modern language teaching in Victoria State, Australia, and the innovative pedagogy practised by ‘bi-lingual’ schools in Britain.
