Developing students’ speaking and writing skills in MFL GCSE (9–1)

This half day course is aimed at GCSE language teachers looking to develop their students’ speaking and writing skills for the new MFL GCSE (9–1). The course is run by an experienced teacher and trainer and will be fully interactive. Throughout the course, there will be a number of activities that will help teachers to explore and acquire strategies to meet their pupils’ needs and maximise their potential as well as giving teachers new ideas to try out in class.

The half day course is broken down into the following areas but can be tailored to the school's needs:

  • Translation skills
  • Strategies and activities to support the GCSE writing paper
  • Strategies and activities to support the GCSE Speaking unit with a focus on building student confidence and spontaneity
