French Language Training
Start date: 01 Jun 2016, End date: 31 May 2017 PROJECT  FINISHED 

The primary focus of my interest in participating in this immersion course is to allow me to become a more competent, experienced, knowledgeable and confident MFL classroom practitioner. I am currently fully registered in teaching German and now am embarking on learning French. I look forward to engaging with the course content, learning new teaching methodologies and exploring innovative pedagogical practices. In attendance, I am eager to liaise with fellow teachers from across Europe with the opportunity of linking classes, twinning schools and participating in shared projects.As a consequence of my participation and successful completion of the course, the insight gained, the proficiency acquired and the new relationships/friendships with foreign students, will serve to further enrich my pupils' learning in the classroom dynamic.The bolstering and further of Modern Foreign Languages articulates very well with the current mindset of the Scottish Government and articulates very well with the European dimension, as outlined in my school's development plan, geared towards helping young people to acquire a view of Europe as a multi-cultural, multi-lingual community and to stimulate an interest in and to boost competence in other European languages.On a local level, I would propose meeting with fellow MFL teachers to raise the awareness of this most practical and useful Continuous Professional Development, cascading down activities undertaken, training imported and didactic knowledge acquired.Participation at regional - indeed national - events within an MFL educational framework will enable me to disseminate my findings on the course, relating my impressions, experience and benefits yielded to various stakeholders.On the European front, I propose exploring - where appropriate - a meaningful professional dialogue with partner schools in Europe to identify ideas of common purpose and goal-setting, where MFL learners in these partnership establishments might be enriched by a shared interest and a positive linguistic, cultural and social relationship.
