Seminar for foreign language education experts, educators and teachers

No kopīgiem pasākumiem uz savstarpējo saprašanos

A seminar under the title of Exploring ways to test mediation and pliricultural/plurilingual skills in the classroom was held at the Library of the University of Riga, 19-21 February 2020.

The seminar aimed at introducing the Latvia National curriculum developers, language test developers and language language teachers to the new mediation and pluricultural/plurilingual scales recently published in the Companion Volume to the CEFR.

In the course of the workshops, the participants had an opportunity to review the National Foreign Language Curriculum for the secondary school and the Companion Volume and assess the reference to mediation skills in the former document. The next practice examples were shared and studied by the teachers and educators, as well as mediation assessment scales in the context of foreign language teaching and learning were produced in perfectly organised workshop groups. The seminar was attended by a Riga Secondary School 34 teacher of English and FL subject leader Jekaterina Mazure.

With the support of the European Centre for Modern Languages and European Commission, the seminar was organised by Ms Tajana Kunda, senior desk officer at National Centre for Education, Department of National Examinations, RELANG (Relating language examinations to the common European reference levels of language proficiency) and LATE – Latvian Association of the Teachers of English. The workshops were successfully led by ECML experts José Noijons from the Netherlands and Mr Gábor Szabó from Hungary.
