For episode 6 of the #mfltwitterati podcast, we’ve gone football crazy, with nearly a full match’s worth of content exploring how the beautiful game can be exploited in the languages classroom. There are also two competitions for you to take part in, a discount offer from Linguascope and two exclusive contributions from the BBC no less!
We have some lovely feedback to play you too in this episode. Thank you so much as always for all your tweets, 5* iTunes reviews and SpeakPipes. We really appreciate your support.
For this episode’s TechTalk interview, Noah and I chat with Vincent Everett, Head of Languages at Northgate High School in Norfolk. Vincent describes how he has been flipping his classroom to help students prepare for their GCSE examinations. He gives a shout out to the Association for Language Learning’s suite of wikis which are full of free and useful resources made by teachers for teachers. Finally he demos live a technique he employs for extending speaking through chunking and reducing cognitive load live with Noah. My favourite part of the interview!
