Both strategies will help you to get pupils talking in no-pressure environments which will encourage them to participate and engage further.

We know that it can sometimes be tricky to teach languages when you don't have specialist experience, so we've taken this problem and delivered a solution with our strategies. You can try using songs in MFL lessons if you're struggling to get children to engage, it's a great way to add some creativity too. Try out this Using Target Language Songs strategy. The rhythm, rhyme and alliteration in songs can strengthen memory skills which can help students to remember the information that they have learnt.  Background music may also enhance performance on cognitive tasks.
