How does your teaching really acknowledge, embrace and celebrate the fact that your students speak Spanish, and turn this to their – and your – advantage? Like it or not, all foreign learners translate virtually every new or unfamiliar item, no matter how much we insist they Think in English! Rather than see Spanish as ‘the last resort’ we need to ‘aprovechar’ and work efficiently with mental translation. A lively, common sense session demonstrating a wide range of principled, practical ideas to accelerate learning for all Romance language-speaking classes. Throughout, I will suggest lots of ways to incorporate Spanish without ever forcing its active use at all. Eye-opening, controversial, yet blindingly obvious, and lots of fun too.
