Teaching Foreign Languages in the Primary School advises modern foreign language trainee and qualified teachers on how to teach MFL successfully at primary level. This book offers full information, including sections on: *children's ideas about how to learn languages *the current situation of MFL in the UK, Europe and elsewhere *research into second language acquisition (e.g. behaviourist, cognitive and sociocultural perspectives) *different approaches to teaching foreign languages (e.g. audio lingualism, communicative language teaching, task-based instruction) *the use of games, songs and stories *ways of developing speaking, listening, reading and writing skills *ways of developing intercultural understanding, knowledge about language and language learning strategies *assessment, continuity with secondary school, and ways of facilitating transition. Brimming with case studies and tried and tested ideas from a multi lingual language teacher and ITE lecturer, Teaching Foreign Languages in the Primary School shows that language teaching at primary level can be both effective and enjoyable - no matter what language the pupils have as their first, and no matter what level the teacher has reached in their own language learning.

Learning to Teach Modern Foreign Languages in the Secondary School has established itself as the leading textbook for student teachers of modern foreign languages in the UK. The practical focus of the book is underpinned by a theoretical perspective, and students are encouraged to develop a personal approach to modern foreign language teaching. An account is also taken of relevant statutory frameworks. This fully revised, third edition has been thoroughly updated to take account of recent policy and curriculum changes. And, with the recent increased emphasis on teachers as researchers, and the alignment of many PGCE courses, with Masters Level criteria, reference to important concepts and theoretical positions have been strengthened with strong reference to their relevance in the context of professional practice and a new chapter discussing the findings of research on Second Language Acquisition and Foreign Language Learning has been added. Other chapters cover a wide range of relevant topics, including: teaching methods and learning strategies teaching in the target language and developing cultural awareness the teaching of grammar differentiation and assessment the use of ICT in modern foreign language teaching.
