In this workshop led by Dr Sezgin Inceel teachers will hear about the relationship between music and learning.

Scientific studies show that music education plays a significant role both in the acquisition of a child’s mother tongue and in second (or third) language acquisition. In this CPD we will reflect on how we can include music into the language classroom, (even if we believe that we are not musically talented). Suitable for primary and secondary school teachers.

This year the Mother Tongues Festival has partnered with Languages Connect to offer two Continuing Professional Development courses that will equip teachers with new skills to to encourage children’s interest in languages through creative expression. Suitable for foreign language or heritage language teachers, teachers of Irish and teachers with multilingual classrooms, both at primary and secondary level.
