Today I am off to the foreign language strategy forum #FLstrategy. I wonder how many practising teachers will be there? If you wanted to attend you had to take a personal day so it would stop many teachers as asking for one can be tricky in some school and getting cover is sometime difficult. I am therefore very grateful for my school for got cover for me so that my exam classes won't suffer. I really hope this will highlight the fact that languages are crucial in Ireland and they deserve a centre place. I shall report back. You can read the submissions at http://tinyurl.com/n8yabej
