In Teddy Talk, Big Bear Banter and the induction packs for P4-7 and Secondary we have all used flashcards to learn new vocabulary.
MES have now put their flashcards online with audio. Great for use on chromebooks and during the current online learning. (slight warning in that uses American english so need to be careful using some of the vocabulary for UK English speakers eg trousers – pants)
This is another good site for reading books – to read or have read to you. Lots of different subjects for fiction, non fiction and graphic novels.
Webinar on Tuesday May 5th organised by the Bell Foundation and NALDIC where you can pose questions about supporting EAL children while they are at home during the lockdown.

We hope you will enjoy learning languages while cooking and also that you will take part in our online community and add your own favourite recipe using our ‘recipe builder’ – the Linguacuisine authoring tool.
