Common Entrance MFL CPD Conference

A CPD day for all teachers of MFL will be held on Wednesday 3 October 2018 in the Harvey Hall, St Swithun’s School, Winchester SO21 1HA.

There will be a presentation on the different elements and assessment structure of the new French syllabus. There will also be guest speakers delivering sessions;

Gianfranco Conti will focus on teaching grammar and vocabulary and bridging the gap between research and classroom practice; Joe Dale will consider how ICT can support the languages in the classroom and the latest innovations to support MFL teaching. Gianfranco Conti has over 20 years’ experience in teaching, is co-author of the best-selling book for MFL teachers, ‘The Language Teacher Toolkit’, is the founder of the free interactive language-learning website, and was the winner of the 2015 TES best-resource-contributor award, having contributed over 2000 resources, which have been downloaded over three million times worldwide.

Joe Dale is an independent languages consultant from the UK who works with a range of organisations such as Network for Languages, ALL, The British Council, the BBC, Skype, Microsoft and The Guardian. He was recently described in a Guardian article as an 'MFL guru' and 'the man behind the #mfltwitterati'.

The conference will also provide an opportunity to meet with fellow MFL teachers from across the country, to meet the author of the new French For Common Entrance Series, and to explore a range of other teaching resources produced by publishers such as Galore Park and Oaka Books.
