Webinar overview

This online webinar will help teachers to examine how we can create immsersive learning environments in the modern languages classroom.

The session is led by Andrea Pfeil and Emma Whittle.

The webinar will also focus on formulating simple and precise work assignments as well as promoting positive learning behaviours through appropriate routines and rituals in the target language. Find out how you can: 

• gradually create an immersive learning environment in the classroom. 

• provide your students with more opportunities to hear and understand the target language. 

• use the target language as the main means of communication in the classroom.
