What’s the most potent tool for a Language Teacher?
What simple step can a language teacher take to make a big difference in student performance? What motivates children to try harder and increases their focus? What accelerates learning and teaches important grammar principles, without it ever feeling like hard work?
On top of all of that, what could help students to:
- Create sentences (in seconds) (see video of how)
- Speak out loud
- Effortlessly learn essential vocabulary (see video of how)
- See what teachers say (watch MFL teachers)
And what would make language lessons a lot of fun and make children alert with enthusiasm?
“I am a French native speaker and i teach French as a foreign language at one of the Alliance Francaise and from home. I have class of primary school children, leaving certificate students and adults. I played the board game with them and they loved it.
It’s absolutely brilliant! The younger kids don’t realise they are actually practising their French as they think they are playing, the leaving cert students revise their vocabulary, tenses and how to make a sentence and the adults are not shy to talk as the phonetics is helping them to pronounce correctly, so they feel confident when they are talking. I love the way you have so many different ways to play the game. It’s fantastic! As a teacher, this game is the best language game ever!” Anne-Sophie, French Teacher, Alliance
