Language World 2011
Following on from last year and Bricklaying for beginners, and 2009 with Absorbing language learning, I’m once more presenting at ALL Language World.
This year Language World is entitled All together now. Here’s the invite from ALL:-
Join us ALL Together at Language World 2011, 8-9 Jul 2011 @ Imperial College, London:
It’s a conference: A packed programme of over 60 speakers from around the language teaching world…
It’s a training event: It’s only 2 days out of your busy schedule… great CPD for a fantastic price!
It’s an exhibition: A large and varied exhibition showcasing the latest in language learning resources and support.
It’s a real boost to your teaching: A great way to recharge your batteries – a two day shot of ideas, advice and inspiration!
It’s a celebration! Get together with other language teachers from around the UK, and around the world… and in the lead up to the London 2012 Games, celebrate language teaching and learning with your community!

My session this year will be called Entitled to enjoy Primary languages.
Here’s the blurb!
This session will consider the position of language learning in the primary curriculum
(currently as an entitlement) and give practical examples and ideas about how
language learning can be more than a “bolt on”.
It will consider:
• why PLL is so important
• the current position re primary languages
• what is an entitlement?
• what does it mean to me?
• PLL integrated into the curriculum ? learning journeys, cross curricular
activities and CLIL
• international dimension (ref to Comenius Reggio, eTwinning projects)
• motivation to learn
• creativity let loose!
The session will include practical ideas including storytelling, song, dance,
drama, physical activity, international projects, cross curricular links and
exploiting ICT. Examples will be mainly in Spanish with some French ? other
languages may appear!!
I always have a great time at Language World, whether running around the Quad in Oxford, nearly missing the bus in Leicester or dodging goose poo in York, and this year I’m really looking forward to the conference being in London at Imperial College.
