Living Languages - An Integrated Approach to Teaching Foreign Languages in Primary Schools is packed with practical and original ideas aimed at teachers and trainee teachers of foreign languages in primary schools. Written by a team of experienced linguists, this book will inspire and motivate all primary MFL teachers.
There are eight chapters and the contents are structured around the integrated classroom, merging language learning with different aspects of the wider curriculum such as multimedia, performance, celebrations and festivals, creativity and alternative approaches to teaching languages.The included DVD contains additional teaching materials as well as associated films and audio recordings, making this a fully-developed and effective teaching resource.
Over 50 real-life case studies and projects are presented, all of which have been tried and tested in the classroom and many of which have won recent educational awards. Each project is explored from the teachers’ perspective with practical tips, lesson plans and reflections woven throughout the text such as what to budget, how to organise the pre-event period, how to evaluate the activity and whom to contact for further advice in each case.
Activities and examples throughout are given in three languages – French, German and Spanish.ISBN 9780415675635
