Learning Village – online EAL resources for learners aged 6-14 years old

Better Bilingual is currently working in partnership with several primary and secondary schools in Bristol and North Somerset to pilot and support with the implementation of  ‘The Learning Village

This  comprehensive online English language resource has been developed by author /director Caroline Scott of Communication Across Cultures

The Learning Village provides targeted online and offline learning for 6-14 year old English language learners in schools where English is the language of instruction.

Lessons are split among three strands of learning:

  • Survival language – New-to-English to intermediate lessons including the basics of vocabulary and language structures
  • Customised curriculum content – Vocabulary and language structures for the curriculum
  • Phonics – The teaching of reading through sounds

In summary it:

  • Includes 8000+ words and phrases, incorporating speaking, listening, reading and writing
  • Offers tools that help learners unable to read their mother tongue (almost all languages covered)
  • Saves significant time preparing lessons
  • Assess & track learner progress
  • Provides support for blended classrooms or for self-study
  • Offers excellent support for Special Educational Needs students
  • Allows learners to support themselves

 

Better Bilingual highly recommends the Learning Village, which it is possible to trial for free in your school. For further information, please contact catherine@betterbilingual.co.uk or caroline@communicationacrosscultures.com
