Event: Using ANIMATION to support language learning and ALL learning!

We look forward to welcoming you to our BIG event linking animation with language learning taking place on Saturday 27 January 2018 in Edinburgh. The invitation extends not only to all primary and secondary teachers in your authority, but we would also like to offer this opportunity to your Higher or Advanced Higher pupils (£50 per person with limited free pupil places available). Please note that someone will leave on the day with a free iPad mini!

Places will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Please contact us to register.

L3 language resource packs readymade and good to go…

L3 Chinese

It has been wonderful to see the huge energy and enthusiasm for Chinese learning in Borrowfield and Monikie Primaries in Angus. The L3 Chinese pilot involved six lessons over six weeks. It focused on Chinese language and culture using stories, puppets and role-play. Feedback from all involved has been extremely positive, but don’t take our word for it… tune into our YouTube channel to listen to learners and staff sharing the Chinese buzz and be inspired!

L3 Spanish / French / German

You can look forward to L3 planners and accompanying resources coming very soon. Get in touch should you wish to have a look at what they are going to look like!

Family learning: French fun for families in Fife

“Increased attainment, parents as active participants, added value for learners”

These were the big statements used to talk about the French family learning pilot project launched in April this year in Fife. More than 600 families enlisted on the course to complete six initial lessons with the option to complete 12 lessons in total. 

How could this work for your local authority?

Find out more about the project on our YouTube channel and hear feedback on the project.
