Event Date: 12/12/2020 09:45 - 15:15

This international workshop will be held online on Saturday 12 December 2020 and is aimed at teachers and students at both secondary and tertiary level. It seeks to contribute to our understanding of the crucial role emotions play in the foreign language classroom and to find ways in which interest in language learning can be raised. To this end, the workshop contributions will focus on positive emotions in language learning, the relevance of teacher happiness, students’ and teachers’ views on links between emotions and learning modern languages in the UK as well as mentoring as a way to instil positive emotions about language learning. Crucially, the workshop will provide a platform to exchange experiences, learn from each other and explore possibilities to implement research findings in classroom situations, all in dialogue with educators, students and researchers.

The workshop is free but there is limited availability. Visit the website for more information and book your place by 5 December. 

Attendees will receive a link by email prior to the workshop.
