This autumn, the ALCS is organising its first Language Teacher Workshop. Originally planned to take place in London, the workshop will now be delivered online and is open to all teachers of Dutch in adult education in the UK, and generously sponsored by our long-term partner the Nederlandse Taalunie. We are planning sessions on learning psychology, creating learning communities online, personal language journeys and the sense and nonsense of grammar teaching. There will be a borrel with our writer in residence NiñaWeijers, and of course plenty of opportunities to meet colleagues and exchange ideas!
Do join us! We are very much looking forward to bringing together the UK and Ireland’s Dutch language tutors, who are often working in isolation in larger institutions. Do spread the word and register your interest here.
In other news: Flanders House has initiated a stall at the Language Fair in London with a language taster on Saturday 14 November. Board members of the ALCS will be manning the Learn Dutch Stall on both days (13 and 14/11). There will also be a talk by the Dutch Language Union’s general secretary Kris van de Poel, so many exciting opportunities to put the teaching and learning of Dutch high on the agenda!
