Local Experts Masterclass series “Connecting and working with classes in the Target Language” with guest presenter Kati Varela
“In my presentation, I will explain various methods I have used to connect my French and Spanish classes (some in primary some in secondary) to people in other French and Spanish speaking countries and what I have learned from this experience (ie. the advantages/ disadvantages of each tool tried). I will provide examples of the exchanges made and how they have benefited my students’ language development and enthusiasm. I would also explain how this tied up with Joseph Lo Bianco’s research on Competence, Opportunity, and Desire in Language learning.”
