KS3/4 Modern Foreign Languages - Actions Speak Louder



In this programme, MFL teacher Anne Orde demonstrates how sounds, actions, rhythm and melody can be used to help teach French grammar to secondary students.

Anne, a teacher at Bridgewater High School in Warrington, has developed her own techniques and finds that lessons including kinaesthetic, auditory and visual cues for learning are highly effective and enjoyed by pupils.

The physical movements learnt by Anne's pupils are not only arresting but also allow for active monitoring of participation and understanding of the lesson.

MFL expert Hilary Meadowcroft, who has observed Anne's ideas, points out how techniques such as these often encourage pupil contributions and can therefore reduce teacher workload.
