Scaffolding children’s talk and learning

This workshop aims to explore the metaphor of scaffolding in relation to children learning a foreign language at school. Through examining classroom talk and social interaction arising from stories, songs, games and real content, we will consider multiple ways to support – or scaffold – children’s learning from initial, spontaneous responses (often in L1) to increasing competence, autonomy and creativity in L2.
