Regardez, écoutez, discutez… Shorts for Language Practice - School Screening


Now in its fourth year, this project – delivered in partnership with the 1+2 PanTayside team – will once again use a selection of short films to promote language practice and development. This year we will be working with learners in P4/P5, with films and language activities selected that are appropriate for the 8-10 age group.

The primary focus will again be on delivery to French learners, though we are making plans to offer equivalent materials for students of Gaelic to use back in the classroom. The films will mostly come from our Shorts for Middle Ones 2019 collection, and are for the main part dialogue free, which maximizes their adaptability for other language learning environments. The films will be interspersed with practical language tasks based on what the group has just watched. Led by experienced Modern Language teachers currently engaged in the 1+2 scheme, this event will be a chance for your students to watch, listen and speak. 

If you’re interested in this project, and would like to know more about how it can be developed in your own classroom, then come along to our linked CLPL session, where you can have a preview of some of the films and try out a selection of the activities for yourselves.
