In july 2022 in Agadir took place the International meeting for Freinet Educators. One of the long workshops was about languages. 15 languageteachers* from Togo, Ghana, Switzerland, Germany, Italy, Marocco, Cameroun, Belgium and France spent 6 mornings together to talk about our pedagogy and the way way teach our students new languages, about how we learn languages ourselves…
Afterwards, the cooperative reflection continued in our chatgroup and we even decided to organise some online meetings, where we also invited colleagues who were not present in Agadir.
During the schoolyear 2022-2023 we had 4 sunday afternoon meetings, from the comfort of our home, with participants from Togo, Madagascar, Greece, Ghana, Switzerland, Germany, Marocco, Cameroun, Belgium and France.
We have planned 5 meetings, always on sunday 14h-16h CET:
1 October 23
3 december 23
4 February 24
17 march 24
9 June 24
If you want to be invited, send and email to Katrien or Alessandra or leave a message here.
*language teachers / teachers who teach (also) foreign languages. We hope that every teacher sees himself/herself as a language teacher. We also talk about using and valorising the family languages of our students.
P.S.: We will also continue this passionating work in the next international meeting in Oaxaca in Mexico.
