About the webinar
This workshop explores the ways in which use of the learners' own language(s) can support learning in the classroom - both face-to-face, and, of course, online!
Examining when and how own-language use by teachers or learners might be helpful, you will reflect on your own attitudes to own-language use, examine possible alternatives to your current approach, and consider how far they are appropriate for your own context. We will look at how teachers might use the learners’ own language in class, and explore own-language practices, tasks and activities that learners might usefully engage in.
