Teaching A-Level languages

Discussion in 'Modern foreign languages' started by SarahMiller1988, Jan 17, 2012.

  1. Hi everyone,

    I am a French & Spanish NQT at a school in South West London. In general my first year is going quite well, but I am finding it difficult teaching AS level this year. My subject knowledge is good, but I find it really difficult choosing activities that will help students to learn the best during their lessons. I only see these students once a week - they have my colleague for two hours a week & see a languages assistant for two other hours a week. I am currently teaching the Popular Culture module from AQA. We have covered cinema and are moving on to music & fashion.

    I was wondering if anyone could point me in the right direction of some great resources or some direction as to what activities are best in A-Level languages lessons.

    Thanks in advance!!

    Have you come across www.frenchteacher.net yet? I couldn't live without it! I hope you've also had the opportunity to observe A-level teaching - perhaps you could liaise with the other teacher/head of department to see examples of their resources and activities. If you pm me with your email I can send you the resources I have on this topic (French only).
  3. Look on the yahoo mfl resources forum - there was a thread about music AS with some great resources attached at the beginning of January
  4. Hi Redpens,
    How can I get into that yahoo mfl resources forum?
    I have looked it up and cannot find any forum or any current resources, perhaps I am looking at the wrong site!
