Three Week Immersion Course in Spain
Start date: Jun 1, 2015, End date: May 31, 2016 PROJECT  FINISHED 

I am an experienced teacher of French and I would like to take part in the LFEE intensive three-week residential programme with the view to completing an approved period of residency to attain full registration in Spanish from GTC Scotland. I would like to build upon my experience in the teaching and learning of my first language and enhance my ability in the teaching Spanish to young people by embedding the target language into the school curriculum. As the uptake for Spanish courses has increased over the years and with the introduction of the Modern Languages 1+2 approach in Scotland, educational bodies are encouraging staff to develop professionally in this area and this would be an opportunity to help implementing long term benefits in the school I work in. For instance, the teaching of Spanish would develop students' cultural awareness and understanding of another European country, it would benefit high-achieving students in terms of National Qualifications but the teaching of Spanish would also benefit students who would prefer continuing their education through a vocational course as they would be provided with skills for learning, life, and work. This three-week immersion course additionally provides new ways of embedding ICT in the language curriculum and this aspect might be helpful in terms of professional development and finding partnership schools abroad as the research in language teaching has been focussing on using ICT within the language curriculum, but it would also provide students with and opportunity to communicate with other schools abroad.
