GROW 18 – Teaching a Language as a Native Speaker

We are excited to invite you to be part of our 2021 GROW programmes.  There is a professional development opportunity for every teacher of languages in Aotearoa; better yet, it’s FREE.

This series of workshops is aimed at native speakers of the language they teach. Strategies covered will consist of such things as:

  • Understanding the challenges of their own languages and skills to break these down into manageable chunks
  • Ensuring input in the target language is comprehensible and consistent, and students have multiple opportunities for language input/output/interaction
  • Confidence in understanding of and implementation of the NZC
  • Exploring communication – language and culture – what does this mean in the classroom
  • Workshop 1 – Full day Thursday 18 February 2021 9am–3pm
  • Workshop 2 – Online Tuesday 16 March 2021 3.30–5.30pm
  • Workshop 3 – Online Monday 24 May 2021 3.30–5.30pm
  • Workshop 4 – Full day Thursday 1 July 2021 9am–3pm
