The interview is in Swedish, and the video is subtitled in Swedish. We have prepared a transcript in English for those who don’t understand Swedish.
You might like to organise your own live conversation with your colleagues about grammar teaching as part of the Language-focused teaching strand in Paul Nation’s Four Strands model. You could discuss some of the topics taken up by Ewa Baedecke and Rusalina Ehnvall in the video above:
- whether translation activities might serve a purpose in language-focused learning;
- working with language-focused learning in linguistically diverse classes;
- whether it would be helpful to have more guidance on what structures and vocabulary to cover in different language courses;
- the role for language learning of grammatical awareness in the learners’ first language.
