Innovative ICT applications which support the teaching of MFL are investigated, including web applications that encourage boys to speak, and ways of using the internet to keep students interested.
At Nottingham High School for Boys, head of MFL Jose Picardo finds that using a range of stimulating web applications is a good way to get his boys speaking high quality Spanish.
Fiona Hilton at Kingstone School in Barnsley uses the internet to stimulate her students' interest in French life and language.
She downloads French language videos to trigger vocabulary work with her Year 10 class, encourages them to use the internet for research, and use an inter-school social network to communicate with French-speaking students around the world.
Finally, at Cramlington Learning Village the emphasis is on encouraging students' self-assessment skills. A Year 9 group practices their spoken French by creating an audio-visual presentation about Haiti.
