Are you a Spanish teacher ready to stop wishing and get serious about using 90% target language in your world language classroom? Are you a French teacher who knows that ACTFL recommends at least 90% but has no idea how to get there?
You’re in the right place, because for the next 10 days on Instagram and Facebook, I’m hosting the most epic 10 Day challenge right on time for back to school to get you in shape for teaching with immersion techniques. I’ve brought together the best in the business to teach you how to use 90% target language in class and stick with it throughout the year.
Want to join the challenge? Follow me on Instagram @lalibrelanguagelearning and post along with us for the 10-Day Challenge using the hashtag #targetlanguage to see what the experts have for you. You’ll be sure to end the 10-Day Challenge with amazing and practical ideas for how to stay in the target language and reach your 90% goals!
Have you ever wished the transition to proficiency were easier to do? Grab the FREE toolkit here to learn the framework for updating your practice to comprehensible input – without all the overwhelm – and prepare for the challenges ahead.
How to Teach with 90% Target Language
This 10 -Day challenge is intended to bring together the world language community and share our collective knowledge on what we know about how to make our French classes better, our German classes more authentic, our Chinese classes more about proficiency, and our Spanish classes more about learning Spanish and less about learning Spanish grammar. I created this series because too many teachers want to get there but don’t know how, so here are some other resources you can look forward to in the upcoming video and blog series soon to be released:
- Why teaching with 90% Target Language Should be your #1 Priority This Year
- Tackling Your Fears and Hang-Ups Behind Using More Target Language & How It Will Solve Your Problems
- Building Your Curriculum Around Target Language
- Activities that Promote Target Language Use
- Holding Students/ Yourself Accountable, and How to Talk to Admin, Parents, and Students who Don’t Understand
Why 90% Target Language Should be Your #1 Priority This Year
This is only the beginning of all the resources coming your way.
I can’t wait to see what your goals are and what you learn from the 10-Day Challenge to get to 90% target language.
As always, I’ll catch you in the trenches.
