How can we encourage children to speak and practice using language in a way that builds self-esteem? 

The opportunity to speak, share and develop language and explore speaking skills can be very limited for some children.

For EAL learners, perhaps only home language has been spoken. For many children with ALN/SEN, opportunities to speak, share and develop a love of language diminished over lockdown. Teachers are becoming increasingly aware of a growing communication gap.

Join Julia to explore a range of low, mid and high-tech strategies to encourage speaking, listening and to develop a love of language.
