Code: TTSA/23/0005 SWIFT Subject Masterclass: Why Phonics teaching in MFL is so important

This course will attempt to answer the question: ‘Why is teaching Phonics in MFL so important?’

There is evidence that accurate decoding in a foreign language supports:

-          reading comprehension

-          vocabulary learning

-          learner autonomy

-          grammar learning

-          a link has been found between ability to decode accurately and motivation for studying the language and intention to continue studying it.

-          speaking, listening and writing also benefit
