Inspiring practice

In this section of the website you will find a small selection of inspiring practices from different contexts. They are divided into two categories: Inspiring stories about language learning and Resources for inspiring language learningThe stories and resources presented here aren’t meant to be representative; rather, they illustrate how the core ideas of ILLEY, namely the guiding principles, may be brought to life. We hope that they will spark your own creativity to approach language learning in a way that inspires both you and the children in your class. We are grateful to all those who provided us with inspiring examples of language learning and resources for learning contained in this section of the website.

Inspiring stories about language learning

Here you will find successful language learning experiences that may be wholly or partly transferrable to your particular context, despite having taken place in an educational situation that is different from your own. For a better overview, these stories are divided into 3 age groups: 3 to 6 years6 to 9 years and 9 to 12 years.

Resources for inspiring language learning

Here you will find concrete ideas such as example projects, learning and teaching methods as well as concrete didactic resources (games, books, websites, ICT etc.). We hope that these resources will help to create an inspiring language learning environment for all children in your class.
