Love Languages, Love Learning
Liz McLean has been a teacher of Languages for almost 20 years and is currently Head of Languages at Christ College Brecon. She sees language learning as a vital skill in any pupil profile and aims to share her passion for languages with the pupils that she teaches.
This seminar will look at how to get pupils on board in their language learning and how to build their confidence and resilience in the languages classroom. At a time when language teaching and learning is in decline, we need to be better than ever before in making language learning relevant, exciting and necessary for a broad and balanced learning profile.

Children are given opportunities to develop their gross and fine motor skills, memory, auditory and visual perception, phonological awareness and social skills.
