Upcoming School Education TCAs

Languages in Context
Online 9-11 November

Are you a language teacher? Do you want to provide your students with more opportunities to put their language learning in context? Then join us for “Languages in Context”, a thematic seminar that will address such issues as student motivation, pronunciation and providing students with meaningful language interactions. The seminar will put a special emphasis on methodologies and ways of using Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL) for meaningful language acquisition. Learning a (foreign) language and vocabulary through context is an important but often overlooked aspect of language learning. In addition to the pursuit of language learning in a purely academic setting, the thematic seminar will look at methodologies for language learning that involve teacher and student exchanges, travel and real-life interactions.

Target Group: Primary and Post-Primary schools working with young people through languages.
