Last Sunday was International Mother Language Day. I had the pleasure of joining a multinational and multilingual group of speakers at a British Council Facebook live event. We talked about the use of L1 in the classroom and shared ideas for translation activities.
The other 3 speakers were:
Emma Meade Flynn from Dublin TEFL,
Riccardo Chiappini, Linguistic Mediation Consultant.
Girish Mulani, Co-founder of UnboxEng.
The discussion was facilitated by Marcus James, social media manager of @TeachingEnglish.BritishCouncil.
You can also download the handout with the all the activities shared. Procedures, comments and references included.
