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.

Teach Italian sounds a la Rachel Hawkes

Teach Italian sounds a la Rachel Hawkes

For those who have ever come across the genius Rachel Hawkes (http://rachelhawkes.typepad.com/linguacom) you might have considered teaching sounds and sound patterns before teaching words. This powerpoint goes through all the sounds of the Italian language. Rachel encourages you to use a sign with each sound to help pupils remember the sound better, so I’ve put the sign to do with each slide. It’s not prescriptive of course and you can do what you want. I found that spending a couple of lessons teaching my pupils the sounds before the words improved dramatically their progress and confidence later on.
