Primary Languages: Effective Learning and Teaching

Primary Languages: Effective Learning and Teaching

October 2008 | 192 pages | Learning Matters
Primary languages are to be an entitlement for all pupils in KS2 from 2010. There is therefore a need to ensure that trainee primary teachers are equipped with the required skills, knowledge and understanding to contribute to this process. This book supports specialists, and also non-specialist trainees with an interest in MFL, who may need to deliver languages across the curriculum, providing them with a clear understanding of the methodology and helping them to develop linguistic competence and confidence.

This is a book I have used frequently in the past year with students and have recommended they buy.
