Tags: Languages

What is this?

Who is this for?

​Primary and secondary languages teachers.

How to use this Learning and assessment resource to improve practice?

This resource provides a straightforward way to check on whether the planned L3 will provide a meaningful language learning experience. Also, there are questions to help practitioners judge whether their L3 planning takes account of the parameters surrounding the learning of a second additional language. These questions include:

  • Does the L3 allow learners to build on prior learning?
  • Are the aims of the L3 achievable within the timescale?
  • Does the L3 allow for sustainability?
  • Is it realistic in terms of resources and support required?
  • Is there an opportunity for continuation with the L3 in the senior phase?
