Spanish Immersion Course

Mrs Tierney from the Modern Languages Department successfully completed a Spanish Immersion Course in Malaga, Spain from 31 March to 7 April. This course was specifically designed for Teachers of Spanish from British schools to improve their linguistic skills and exchange good practice. Participants attended classes every day and worked together on practical activities that could be used in the classroom. These activities included using games, songs, films, art and literature to teach languages, ICT workshops, using role play, the Spanish School system and even some Sevillana dancing lessons. The benefits of teachers attending such courses will of course be passed on to the pupils in our school, giving them a deeper understanding of the culture of the countries whose languages we teach and making their learning experience positive and fun.
