During the Modern Foreign Languages Secondary with Qualified Teacher Status (QTS) course at Liverpool John Moores University, you will focus on the various approaches and pedagogies for Modern Languages, emphasising the practical application of theoretical learning. A sequence of micro-teaching experiences allow you to develop and share with peers, your understanding of learning and teaching strategies that support effective practice in the classroom.
You will explore the signature pedagogies such as language learning strategies, developing intercultural understanding and inductive and deductive grammar learning. These sessions will help to deepen your understanding of the role and nature of Modern Languages in the curriculum and your own personal philosophy for teaching. You will also develop a historical understanding of Modern Languages in the National Curriculum, enabling you to develop a wide repertoire of teaching and learning approaches.
This programme enables you to fulfil the aims of the National Curriculum in promoting “a liberation from insularity” and “an opening to other cultures”. You will develop teaching skills enabling your students to “express their ideas and thoughts in another language and to understand and respond to its speakers, both in speech and in writing”. The development of such experiences and skills are not only invaluable for young people’s education as teenagers, but also for their future lives in an interconnected world.
