“We want our learners and teachers to feel confident in their use of the target language. The conference will explore different ways in which to engage and enthuse learners and reward their achievements. We will consider challenges and introduce case studies and ideas for use in your classroom based on the experience of staff who have recently completed immersion courses in France and Spain.”

Brian Stobie, Durham County Council
