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


Now in its third 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 P6/P7, with films and language activities selected that are appropriate for the 9–11 age group.

The primary focus will again be on delivery to French learners, though we do offer equivalent materials for students of Spanish and German to use back in the classroom. The films will mostly come from our Shorts for Middle Ones collection, though this year we will also be screening one film in the target language without subtitles in English. 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.
