Linguistics in and beyond the languages classroom: why and how! A webinar with Sarah Campbell
Tuesday, 14 July 2015 from 20:00 to 21:00 (BST)
ALL London organises webinars open to all teachers. We hope that you will like us and want to join!
We were extremely impressed with a talk given by Sarah Campbell at Language World 2015 and invited her to share her ideas even more widely by presenting a webinar for us. This picture was taken by the European Commission's Paul Kaye during the session. Language lovers cannot fail to be enthused and motivated by this presentation! Here is her description of the session:
Linguistics in and beyond the languages classroom: the why and the how!
Whether or not you studied linguistics yourself, introducing linguistics into the languages classroom is an effective way of enhancing pupils’ language, literacy and problem solving skills. This practical session explores the crosscurricular benefits of linguistics, and provides ideas and resources, including information on how to access support.
