Event Date: 18/01/2022 16:30 - 17:30

 “Once you overcome the one-inch tall barrier of subtitles, you will be introduced to so many more amazing films.” - Bong Joon-ho  

When we watch films in languages other than our native tongue, not only are exposed to incredible cinema, we also learn more about other cultures and celebrate other languages.  As Languages Week Scotland 2022 approaches (31 Jan – 4 Feb 2022) we at Screen Scotland wanted to take the opportunity to explore the ways in which film viewing, film analysis and filmmaking can enhance the teaching of Modern Languages in both the Primary and Secondary classroom.

In this month’s Tuesday Team Talk, four speakers will share their experiences in combining Film Education with Modern Languages:

  • Ciara Gibson, teacher at Grandtully Primary School, Perth & Kinross
  • Sophie Clarke, teacher at Simpsons Primary School, West Lothian
  • Ann Robertson, independent languages consultant, Our World multilingual film making competition by Scottish European Education Trust (SEET)
  • Lynne Jones, Professional Development Officer for SCILT (Scotland's National Centre for Languages).
