Rachel Hawkes and Natalie Finlayson presented Culture and cultural capital in language teaching at KS3 and KS4 at a half day webinar on 5 July 2021. This is the final of a series of online NCELP sessions hosted by the Network for Learning at Bath Spa University, Institute of Education.

Session summary:
Language and culture are two sides of the same coin; closely related, there cannot be one without the other. This session offers a practical and holistic view on language and culture in classroom language teaching, showing how culture combines easily with phonics, vocabulary and grammar teaching, providing students with a strong linguistic and cultural foundation, encouraging them to ‘step beyond familiar cultural boundaries and develop new ways of seeing the world’. Particularly relevant to the proposals for the new GCSE Subject Content, all ideas come with freely available resources in French, German and Spanish.
