Proficiency and comprehensible input strategies for world language teachers are usually my favorite topics. Even in a time like teaching virtually and distance learning during a pandemic, it’s still my favorite. Why? Because in this masterclass, we’re talking about why proficiency can’t wait until next year, no matter what hybrid setup, in-person teaching model, or completely remote setup you have for your French or Spanish classroom.
You need to watch this if you’re tempted to wait on comprehensible input for your Spanish or French class because it’s too hard with everything else you have going on this semester.
I get it – distance learning is the hardest thing teachers have been through so far. But comprehensible input strategies and proficiency will make your job as a teacher in 2020 EASIER, not harder.
