This week, we discussed two topics:
Topic 1: Teaching Methods!
After watching a few episodes of Welsh reality TV Welsh learning celebrity knees-up cariad@iaith, we decided to pick up on their 3 big methods for teaching languages and explain what they mean and who they work for. These are immersion, TPR, "communication" and story time a.k.a. the "input method".
- What is natural language learning and why does everyone lay claim to it?
- Which teaching methods work in our opinion? How do we teach?
- Which methods would we like to see from other teachers, which innovative methods benefit learners?
Listen in to find out more.
Topic 2: Polyglot 2020
It's time to plan your events for the year! We share what's new with Women in Language, the Polyglot Cruise, the Cholula party, and the Edinburgh Language Event.
