Performing Languages

This theme is not about pupils learning languages but about exploring the sounds and the production of sounds in various in order to develop a confidence and flexibility when imitating a native speaker of a language:

an assembly where children are performing their knowledge of language
  • Pupils can repeat the sentences in the languages of their peers or a classroom visitor.
  • They can sing songs or rhymes from around the world
  • Or sing Silent Night
  • Searches on YouTube can yield many different songs in different languages
  • Or have a go at tongue twisters in various languages
  • More tongue twisters
  • Send an e-card in a different language
