MFL Workshops by Dr. Gianfranco Conti

This CPD course for MFL teachers will provide delegates with a deeper understanding of the cognitive mechanisms involved in language acquisition and processing and will offer a wide range of evidence-based instructional strategies for accelerating learning.

Our focus will be on modelling and enhancing listening and speaking instruction, explicitly integrating the two skills. Gianfranco will share and demonstrate a substantive repertoire of classroom strategies which are readily applicable to a variety of languages and topics.

Workshop 1 - Listening Skills Instruction: Teaching Listening Bottom-Up

In this workshop Gianfranco will provide a wide range of evidence-based strategies and techniques aimed at modelling language through aural input.

In his approach, listening instruction, both unidirectional and interpersonal, primes and prepares the language learner for oral production through a focus on micro-listening skills such as:

  • Decoding
  • Lexical retrieval
  • Syntactic parsing
  • Holding chunks in working memory
  • Meaning negotiation and construction

Workshop 2 - Strategies for Maximising and Optimising the Use of Curriculum Time by Working with Human Forgetting Rates

Language teaching is often a race against time: in the very little contact time available, teachers must secure the retention and automatisation of a relatively wide range of vocabulary, structures and skills sets. To best tackle this challenge, MFL teachers must have at least a basic understanding of the key cognitive challenges that language teaching and learning pose to their students.

During the second workshop, Gianfranco will provide a concise research-based account of how the human brain processes, retains and retrieves L2 vocabulary and grammar. Giancarlo will also suggest effective ways to maximise teaching and learning time by:

  • Embedding ILRs (Implicit Learning Routines);
  • Teaching high - surrender -value functional chunks and
  • 'Smart' recycling
