The SPEAKGLOBAL programme is designed to raise awareness of multilingualism in the world, and cognitive benefits of speaking several languages.
The programme is free to use for any UK Modern Languages teacher.
It is targeted at Key Stages 3 and 4 and consists of 2 sessions of about 40-45 minutes each, suitable for all abilities and students studying different languages.
The Powerpoint is accompanied by detailed Teacher Notes giving teachers all the information they need to teach this programme themselves.
The programme was developed by the Open University academics Ursula Lanvers and Kristina Hultgren, and tested in two County Durham schools with great success.
