  • Chelsea, thank you for your inspiring and thoughtful feedback. I am doing now Communication and Media with my French B grade 12 students. We can definitely talk about this in class.

    Celebrating linguistic and cultural diversities outside of the classroom

    • Hi Maude,

      I really enjoyed reading your post. I already mentioned this elsewhere, but some people have asked how SPELTAC is relevant to the subject Foreign Language and I believe your post answers this question. SPELTAC is about developing international mindedness through our approach to languages and learning and the ideas in your post highlight this. Your role as language teacher is so important in promoting linguistic and cultural diversity and I believe all teachers can learn from your ideas. Thanks so much for sharing!

    • Maude, I love your ideas and I hope we can make them a reality!

      Looking forward to discussing with you further with our inquiry group as I think we’ve got some similar ideas! Thanks for sharing and I’m excited for our school to really get celebrating our multi-linguistic diversity! 🙂

    • Hi Maude, I love your ideas and I would love to see and hear more languages living vibrantly at ISPP! Thank you for putting your ideas together and sharing them.

      I’m also curious about popular media in the target languages. Many of our students follow people on Instagram, YouTube, and SnapChat in English. They watch TV series, read their favorite authors, newspapers, cartooninsts, Manga artists, and more. I wonder who their non-English peers are excited about? Who are the popular personalities in Cambodia? Korea? France? Spain? Are they publishing media in languages other than English?

      How can we find these? How could we share them and get students engaged in them? Features in Assembly? Sharing Instagram posts in the student bulletin?

      I hope we can find many sustainable ways to feed languages!

    • A few more comments and a pool of great ideas!! It would be amazing to implement these ideas, ask students to get involved in ways to share and explain their favourite cultural things/ artefacts/ popular culture, get them to film it…. et voila! Ca c’est la project finale! Pardon my French! It would also be achieving the goal of valuing our students’ cultural background.

  • I believe that learning is directly linked with interaction and emotions.

    That is why, as teachers,  we have to promote social behaviours in class such as greetings and basic social interactions. When […]
