What is your advice about? Planning MFL lessons

  1. Don’t use pictures – they distract kids from the language. Use the written word instead, and get them reading out loud lots.
  2. Never, ever, spend more time making a resource than the kids will spend using it.
  3. Don’t use the target language and mime. Translate every word you use until they know it without the translation.
  4. Repeat the good stuff over and over and over again until they know it. And I mean really know it.
  5. Don’t give them fun. Give them everything they need to know, and they’ll enjoy how confident they feel.
