Product reviews for Making Every MFL Lesson Count

Rebecca Nobes, Head of Spanish, The Boswells School, and member of the Chartered College of Teaching Council
When I heard that there was an MFL edition in the Making Every Lesson Count series, I was really excited - and upon reading it I was really pleased to see that James has stayed true to the format of the original book, while acknowledging that MFL teaching and learning varies from that of other subjects in a number of ways.

The mini case studies really help to set the scene at the start of each chapter, and the reflective questions are not only useful for personal reflection but also serve as helpful prompts for departmental meetings and development planning. What is also pleasing is the healthy balance that James has struck between references to research and his offering of a range of strategies that can be applied and adapted in the classroom. James also takes care to acknowledge the difficulties educators face in MFL teaching, such as time constraints, and factors these into his suggestions.

Making Every MFL Lesson Count will be useful for any MFL teacher; I'll most definitely be recommending it to my colleagues. I'm certain it will shape my thinking when it comes to my planning, both of the curriculum and my individual lessons.
