De l’Automne à l’Hiver…
August to October has been busy, productive and enjoyable. We have developed new online courses to support the introduction of L3 in Scottish schools. Our L3 package is now available in Chinese, French, Spanish and German. We have also added Spanish to our Courses for Families programme. Continue reading to find out more.
Our PowerLanguage Conference was also well received and attended by delegates from Australia, Austria, France, Spain, England and of course Scotland! Many thanks to all colleagues who helped us make it a successful day, and to the schools which hosted our international delegates the following day: un grand merci à Rosebank Primary School in Dundee and Maisondieu Primary School in Angus! Please see the link below to our Youtube Channel to watch the presentations.
Finally, Richard Tallaron went to Wales to learn about their new “Bilingual + 1” programme, and to present PowerLanguage to Welsh schools. About 30 schools will be piloting our powerLanguage.school website this year in North Wales.
We look forward to the next few months and the run up to Christmas, and wish you all a great Autumn into Winter season of language fun!
