Learning to Teach Modern Languages in the Secondary School Summary

Learning to Teach Modern Languages in the Secondary School: A Companion to School Experience by Norbert Pachler (University of London, UK)

Learning to Teach Modern Foreign Languages in the Secondary School has established itself as the leading textbook for student teachers of modern foreign languages in the UK. The practical focus of the book is underpinned by a theoretical perspective, and students are encouraged to develop a personal approach to modern foreign language teaching. An account is also taken of relevant statutory frameworks.

This fully revised, third edition has been thoroughly updated to take account of recent policy and curriculum changes. And, with the recent increased emphasis on teachers as researchers, and the alignment of many PGCE courses, with Masters Level criteria, reference to important concepts and theoretical positions have been strengthened with strong reference to their relevance in the context of professional practice and a new chapter discussing the findings of research on Second Language Acquisition and Foreign Language Learning has been added. Other chapters cover a wide range of relevant topics, including:

  • teaching methods and learning strategies
  • teaching in the target language and developing cultural awareness
  • the teaching of grammar
  • differentiation and assessment
  • the use of ICT in modern foreign language teaching.

Learning to Teach Modern Languages in the Secondary School Reviews

Reviews from second edition:

'It is an excellent reference resource presenting clear, straightforward, factual information on all current issues facing MFL student teachers ... Also an excellent reference guide during the first years of teaching.' - Mentoring and Tutoring

'The content and scope are very impressive ... The authors have managed to condense a wealth of theory, research, practical advice, case studies and tasks into one volume ... Packed with useful ideas, addresses including WWW addresses and references ... I would regard this book as indispensable for both HEI tutors and mentors, and an important book to recommend to all MFL students.' - Langauge Learning Journal
