Modern Languages Teaching Forum

Modern Languages Teaching Forum

The Modern Languages Teaching Forum is designed to bring together teachers of modern languages at all levels to share good practice and discuss the challenges facing the sector, support language teaching and encourage pupils to continue to study languages and develop their confidence.

In addition to the personal benefits that come from having a command of a language other than your own, we know that language learning is increasingly important for young people, both as an employability asset and as the path par excellence to developing intercultural skills and empathy.

The Forum is intended to take place twice a year, each time with a different broad area of language teaching in focus.

The fifth Modern Languages Teaching Forum took place in December 2021. We wanted to take stock of what we have done this year, understand which good practices we can port into blended experiences and how we can return to normal classroom settings enriched by the work we have done during the pandemic.

The next Modern Languages Teaching Forum will take place in 2022.

More information about upcoming events and past fora can be found in news and events. Our resources section lists all the materials and resources provided at previous Forum events and other teaching and learning resources provided by participants.

The Modern Languages Teaching Forum is convened by Dr Alvise Sforza Tarabochia and Dr Wissia Fiorucci in the Department of Modern Languages and Linguistics at the University of Kent.
