Mark Parrott's MFL Resource Emporium

French and Spanish teacher, Head of MFL, hopeless dancer. I like to create resources that give pupils everything they need to do stuff well in the TL, practise it loads, and then I take the resources away... If we help pupils to create a solid core of useful language, they can pick up the other stuff easily, like rolling a snowball across a snowy meadow, gradually becoming big enough and sturdy enough to build a handsome snowperson.
