A webinar with Dr Rachel Hawkes: Culture and Cultural Capital in the languages classroom

December 5 @ 3:30 pm - 5:00 pm


Please register on Eventbrite to receive Zoomlink in email confirmation.

ALL London organises webinars for the MFL community and this webinar, held in a Zoom room and also viewable on an unlisted YouTube stream, is open to all MFL teachers.  We hope that you will like us and want to join!

This webinar is the first of two December webinars led by Rachel Hawkes. They are in aid of a project to provide for the essential needs of children in the Casa Hogar Amor de Dios orphanages in Arequipa, Perú. Please made a donation, no matter how small, to https://www.justgiving.com/crowdfunding/rachel-hawkes

Note that there is a separate link for the 2nd webinar, Making practice meaningful. 

Most (all?!) teachers would say that language and culture are linked, and you can’t teach one without the other.  What do we mean when we say this? What is culture in the languages classroom? How can we integrate cultural content in an optimum way? How does language learning contribute to our learners’ cultural capital?

This session is packed with resources and teaching ideas (freely downloadable) in French, German and Spanish.  There will also be the chance to see Sanako Connect in action, Sanako Connect on-line supporting remote teaching and learning (in Peru!).


All resources (French, German, Spanish) are freely downloadable from the NCELP Resource Portal. There will also be the chance to see Sanako Connect in action, using meaningful practice tasks to support remote teaching and learning (in Peru!).


Dr Rachel Hawkes is an influential and renowned speaker as well as past President of the Association for Language Learning (ALL), an experienced Head of Modern Languages, AST and SLE.  Co-author of several textbooks, including the Pearson textbook for GCSE Spanish (¡Viva!) and the KS3 Stimmt! course for German, Rachel has both MEd and PhD from Cambridge University, focusing on teacher and learner interaction in the secondary languages’ classroom.  She is currently seconded as Co-Director NCELP, the National Centre for Excellence for Language Pedagogy.
