Association for Language Learning (ALL)
The Association for Language Learning (ALL) is an independent registered charity and the UK’s major subject association for those involved in the teaching of foreign languages at all levels.
ALL produce a wealth of resources and information for both the primary and secondary sectors. You would need a membership to benefit from all of their resources but this is reduced for ECTs.
ECTs have access to regional groups, updates on developments in language learning as well as research and resources. There is a specific section for ECTs aimed at helping them develop all aspects of their practice.
I have used ALL for several years now to ensure that I am up-to-date with current practise in the teaching of MFL. The ECT section of the website provides valuable support and guidance appropriate for those in the early years of their career and introduces them to the wider network of MFL teachers. Networking, the resources and research ensure that we are constantly building on and improving our subject and curriculum knowledge.
Language Gym - a really good website for both teachers (resources) and students. There is a cost involved but this is variable depending on what you want access to and what you want to use if for.
NCELP – National Centre for Excellence for Language Pedagogy - a free website offering resources, schemes of work and pedagogy as well as regional hubs for support.
Another very good website to help students with not only their listening skills but also their grammar and vocabulary. There is a cost involved but the resources can be used for homework and in class.
