Teaching Languages in Primary Schools: Putting Research into Practice

University of Southampton and University of Essex via FutureLearn

Overview

Explore how children learn languages and support their linguistic development

Learning a foreign language at a young age is known to support children’s problem-solving ability, creativity, and intercultural understanding. But many teachers report a lack of language teaching CPD opportunities and, as a result, often lack confidence in their language teaching.

On this course, you’ll learn practical teaching methods for teaching language and discover engaging tasks and projects for primary school students.

Using the latest young language learning research, you’ll be encouraged to reflect and experiment with new resources and improve your current language teaching practice.

This course is primarily designed for primary school teachers who teach children foreign languages.

However, it will also provide useful content for language teacher educators, as well as school subject leads and leadership teams.

The course will also be of interest to parents, private language school practitioners and those who run after-school language clubs, including private tutors.
