Making practice meaningful
Presentation by Rachel Hawkes for the Association for Language Learning (ALL) London webinar held on 12 December 2020.
Meaningful practice activities provide an element of language control whilst compelling students to making meaningful choices when carrying them out. In this session, we examine the principles of task design and explore a wide range of examples across both modes (receptive and productive) and modalities (oral and written). All resources (French, German, Spanish) are freely downloadable from the NCELP Resource Portal. There will also be the chance to see Sanako Connect in action, using meaningful practice tasks to support remote teaching and learning (in Peru!).
