Before you start teaching a new language to your TY students we encourage you to engage them in some introductory tasks.

We have prepared a number to choose from.  They explore both the language and culture of the country/ies they are going to learn about. You can choose a couple of them or get your students to work in stations to complete them all.

All the material you need is included in each task.

Come Visit Me
