What do we know about language learning? What can we do to ensure the best opportunity to acquire a language?

Webinar details

 

This webinar was a highly interactive session. We had 38 attendees from 11 countries attend. Thank you to all those who attended and contributed ideas.

 

What is in this Webinar:

Are your students exposed to English outside of the classroom?
For children to truly acquire a language they need constant exposure to the language. Find out what we can do as teachers and help parents increase exposure to English.

How varied is your input?
Children need to hear, see, and experience new language in various formats repetitively. Find out how we can help combat the forgetting curve by offering varied and challenging input of target language.

Do your students have enough feedback?
Continuous and meaningful feedback is the key to our students’ understanding of their own learning. Children need relevant and timely feedback on all aspects of their language learning experiences, but how can you help this happen?
