Linguistic Mediation is highlighted in both the CEFR and the LOMLOE. In this 15-hour course, we address the principal characteristics of Mediation for English Primary teachers.

Description: Online course focusing on Mediation in the Primary language classroom.

Since the Council of Europe published the CEFR Companion Volume in 2018, Mediation has been one of the hottest topics in language teaching. Now with its incorporation into the LOMLOE educational reform as one of the specific competences for foreign languages, it is something all language teachers need to be familiar with.

Discover our certified online course Mediation for Primary teachers, where we will explore the types of linguistic mediation we can carry out all through Primary: mediating a text, mediating concepts, and mediating communication.  A special focus on the main aspects of assessing mediation will be one of the key areas developed.

  • Mediation: what is it and why is everyone talking about it?
  • What are the three mediation activities set out by the CEFR and what do they look like in the classroom?
  • Understanding spoken and written mediation activities and best practice in the Primary classroom.
  • Communication in context: the key role sociocultural awareness plays in mediation activities.
