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

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.
