There’s more to PLL than ‘that donkey’ – #SWLPLC

I had the privilege on 28th March to speak at the South West London Primary Languages Conference #SWLPLC. My talk was entitled There’s more to PLL than ‘that donkey’ (Tip Top Tips for Primary Language Learning) and took inspiration from my son who when asked what he’d done in French usually replied “oh, we did […]

TeachMeetEdShow – my 2+7 minutes

Last Friday (21st) saw me charging from Stafford to Marston Green, and then running at high speed (wearing inappropriate shoes obviously!) from the carpark to Hall3 for TeachMeetEdShow. Fortified by hugs from various people including Simone (who is as bonkers as me which helps) and Buncey (who is exceedingly clever but also daft as a […]

Every year, I look forward to it, and it’s especially special as I’ve flown back from Switzerland the last two years to speak there. […]

Are you coming to #ililc4?

Now in its fourth year, ILILC (ICT Links into Languages Conference) takes place at University of Southampton on Saturday 8th and Sunday 9th February.

Favourite books for PLL – Tú, ¿Cómo estás?

*This is one of a series of posts about some of my favourite story books for Primary Language Learning* When I was in Barcelona a couple of years ago, I found a couple of books by Imapla that I loved, both very simple but also quirky. Tu ¿cómo estás? is one of them, a large board […]

So, here you have – vocabulary sheet […]
