Enriching Modern Foreign Languages, aimed at Key Stages 3 and 4, is a collection of over 100 brand new enrichment and extension activities that encourage confident use of modern foreign languages in secondary schools and beyond Written by John Senior and Sarah Philo This exciting resource is designed to: *inspire students through challenging enrichment work that encourages more young people to study languages other than English *encourage high standards of competence *stimulate creativity with regard to application of language in different situations *support an informed debate among students about the importance of the clear use of language in an increasingly complex world of practically instantaneous communications. The activities in this book are presented in four sections: *Language tasters: 10-minute activities *KS3/KS4 lesson enrichment activities (French, German, Spanish) *Enriching other languages: lesson enrichment activities *Day-long enrichment activities. Many different syllabuses now exist and are used in schools and colleges. The book aims to provide 'something for everybody' without compromising on either the thinking required by students or the fun and pleasure of studying a language, which is every student's entitlement. A strong element of speaking (and sometimes singing) is included in as many of the activities as possible, with the emphasis on building the confidence of students so that they will be able to speak in and enjoy the language they are studying. Enriching Modern Foreign Languages includes the obvious choices of the most widely taught modern foreign languages (French, German and Spanish) as well as an enrichment activity for students learning Mandarin as it becomes more widely taught and more important in the world of employment. In addition there are activities that look at several less widely taught languages, including Japanese, Polish, Ukrainian and Inuit. Also included is a section providing enrichment activities that cover more than one language, and language learning generally. This is because the process of learning another language is interesting and stimulating in itself, and with many of the general language enrichment activities it is possible to focus them on the modern foreign language that the class is learning. It also provides students with the opportunity to see the links between languages, which, in addition to being of interest, should help them to progress further, and more quickly, in all the languages they are learning.
