In only 60 Minutes, be prepared to walk away with new expertise about bilingual and multilingual learners - BMLs (ESL, EAL students)
GET READY TO LEARN...
*Key strategies you can implement right away to help your BMLs start progressing in their vocabulary and literacy development
*Learn why our learners’ mother-tongue language is valuable for their English learning experiences

As former educators, we know that your time is valuable. That’s why we’ve made this training relevant, high-impact and designed to give you some theory, some key take-aways and of course, practical strategies that you can use right away. You can also feel free to share this resource with your colleagues and team members.
This training is conducted by Alison Schofield and Francesca McGeary, our consultants, authors and experts from the Institute for Educators of BMLs. The aim of the Institute is to support schools and teachers around the world to:
*Better understand BMLs and how to maximise their strengths within the educational environment
*Learn relevant research and strategies that make a huge impact in the achievement of BMLs
*Understand the key approaches and techniques that enable BMLs to thrive (academically, socially, emotionally, culturally)
*Create culturally-rich and culturally-responsive learning environments that maximise student success
