ACTFL Proficiency Chart

ACTFL Proficiency Chart

In this chart, each level is related to an example that will help the student to understand his or her own proficiency level in language learning. Students or teachers can track progress and language proficiency improves throughout the course. Students can identify their current proficiency levels and identify how they can move up a level, to the next level of proficiency. This chart can be blown up to hang up in a classroom. Based on ACTFL 2012 Guidelines. The gray scale level can be given to students to help them monitor their own progress toward proficiency.

How to revise MFL vocabulary effectively (IMPROVED with Spanish version)

How to revise MFL vocabulary effectively (IMPROVED with Spanish version)

Most students will find revision boring - this is mainly because they think staring at the page will do!!! Unfortunately, as much as I stare at the kettle, the cup of tea does not just magically materialise in my hands!! I find this strategy is useful for an active and creative approach to homework. Please model with students by challenging them to memorise a sentence, make it longer and longer each lesson... they get seriously involved!!!! Examples in French and Spanish but concept is applicable to any language.

Whizzy loop

Whizzy loop

Use this whizzy loop by pressing the 's' key on your keyboard to start and stop it spinning super fast. You can change the text on the slides quite easily to suit your purposes - there is one here with numbers, one with dates and one with sentences on and several other ideas - at its simplest you can just ask pupils to translate the slide it stops on but you can use it in many, many different ways - put pupil names on it as a name selector, or sentences starters and a connective to build sentences - you choose. I have put several examples on here to help with ideas, but the concept of randomising things is the same throughout. Enjoy! The pupils LOVE coming to press the 's' key.....the simplest of things seem to please them.
