Hi Chris - Sounds fab: any chance you could blog on how a typical lesson / activity might use these boxes, from start to finish? Thanks ;)


Thought this was a great post. I am a firm believer in teaching MFL in the TL and was horrified to find out that there are many teachers who don't practise this at all. I have started a blog to try to change some minds about this. It is I intend to document teaching a Year 7 class entirely in the TL from day one in September, just to prove that it can be done. Although I have my own things already in place, would you mind if I took some of your ideas from this post? I particularly like the flicker card system you have. Could you explain how it works please and how you set it up? Thanks.

apologies for massively slow response- for some reason the comment notification went into my spam box, so I didn't realise there was a comment until I just did some more blogging!

As for taking ideas, no, of course, not, use away and I look forward to following your posts to find out how you get along. I agree that it is possible, although I do find that there are certain times when having the added depth to reflect and discuss, in particular with grammar, works better in English- but that opportunities to use TL should be at the heart of what we do!
