UK Lingua 2018

21st April to 22nd April 2018 - Chemistry Department, Durham University, Lower Mountjoy, South Road, Durham DH1 3LE

CONFERENCE THEME : Engaging Students

The third UK LINGUA Colloquium will take place on the 21st and 22nd of April 2018 at Durham University. Aimed at MFL and ESL teachers and researchers, UK LINGUA is a forum for the exchange of ideas, theories and practices, enhancing scholarship and teaching excellence in this field.

How do we engage students?

That is - How do we involve them actively in their language learning? How do we help them become true language learners?

Engaging students can imply a form of active learning where students are actively, reflectively or experientially involved in their learning process. A direct involvement in their own learning raises students' intrinsic motivation and should clearly enhance the student experience.

I hear and I forget. I see and I remember. I do and I understand. (Confucius)

This type of learner-centred, rather than teacher-centred learning, with a focus on what students do, rather than on what is being done to them, includes a great variety of language learning and teaching methodologies at all levels (from primary school to university) such as technology-based, task-based, project-based, groupwork learning, flipped learning and peer-teaching, as well as learning through play, culture, literature and many more things.

European Schoolbooks Ltd will be attending the conference with a range of materials in French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish and will be offering a 10% discount on orders placed during the conference.
