Regardez, ├ęcoutez, discutez... Shorts for Language Practice


Now in its sixth 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 from P5 to P7, with films and language activities selected that are appropriate for the 9-11 age group.

"The films will be interspersed with practical language tasks..."

The primary focus for the in-cinema activity will be on delivery to Second Level French learners, though we are making plans to offer equivalent materials for L3 students of Gaelic and learners of French at First Level to use in the classroom. The films will mostly come from our Shorts for Middle Ones 2021 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 not quite sure how these films can be used in your own learning environment, please do have a look at the accompanying resource pack written for teachers by teachers and free to download below.
