Further reading, pedagogy and research

This selection of links directs teachers to a selection of sources of material and ideas, which have direct relevance to the teaching of foreign languages within the current British school context.

The Professional Development Consortium in Modern Foreign Languages (PDC in MFL) gives teachers access to eight key principles of teaching and learning languages, which are based on research evidence. The Consortium was set up by researchers at the University of Reading Institute of Education and University of Oxford Department of Education. It is made up of classroom language teachers, teacher trainers and researchers in England. On the website you can access the research principles, resources and strategies that relate to writing.
