Routledge
Free sample

New Directions for Research in Foreign Language Education brings together contributions by reputed scholars that examine the challenges, opportunities, and benefits of teaching and learning foreign languages. With a particular focus on languages other than English, the book looks at the socio-political dimension of language learning and teaching and the need to re-theorize multilingualism for our age. The volume includes a range of perspectives, from language teaching as an act of reconciliation to language learning across the lifespan, from innovations in assessment and curriculum to critical appraisals of pedagogy and textbook materials. Each chapter presents a clear case study drawn from diverse contexts to illustrate the different concerns of the contributors. The book is a valuable resource for all students, teachers, teacher educators and researchers who share an interest in researching multilingualism and the different facets of teaching and learning foreign languages.

The need to introduce pupils to learning languages at an early stage has been widely acknowledged, with MFL now a core part of the primary curriculum. Fully updated to support busy schools and teachers in planning, teaching and delivering the new primary MFL entitlement for all primary pupils, this user-friendly guide covers significant pedagogical issues and is a key point of reference for all MFL work in the primary classroom.

Now fully updated to include substantive writing about planning and introducing the new assessment scale, this book contains:

comprehensive coverage of resources and planning;

valuable new cross-curricular links;

ready-to-use activities that are anchored in research;

advice on assessment, SEN and the use of technology;

a development of the broader issues of leadership, learning strategies and continuing professional development.

Modern Foreign Languages 5–11 will help practitioners to teach MFL as a dynamic, stand-alone subject while retaining a cross-curricular focus. It builds upon core principles of cultural learning, differentiation, language awareness and transferable skills by providing practical strategies that can be easily implemented in your setting. Offering comprehensive guidance on the pedagogy that underpins language teaching and covering everything you’ll need to teach effectively, this book delivers a range of practical ideas and examples of best practice to help integrate effective language learning, teaching and assessment into the curriculum.

Written to support the needs of trainees, practising teachers and school leaders as they develop their foreign language provision, this guide is key reading for those seeking to enhance their professional practice in primary MFL pedagogy.
