In an innovative take on CLPL, a group of City of Edinburgh teachers have this year embarked on a Higher Spanish course. The Higher Spanish class is made up of a mixture of primary and secondary teachers from Edinburgh schools, all keen to develop skills in Spanish to support our work with pupils. For many of us the drive has come from an interest in implementing 1+2 in our clusters and ensuring that our youngsters are able to blossom as successful language learners through engaging with creative, inspiring experiences throughout their school careers. Our tutor, Manuel Montenegro, motivates and enthuses all of us through his skilful use of active, cooperative learning and teaching strategies. Although challenging in the middle of a busy teaching week, our Wednesday evening lesson is a high-point in the week for us all!
