Remote learning had been particularly challenging for learners with English as an Additional language. Due to the national Covid-19 lockdowns, many bilingual learners might have had a limited access to a broad range of English, including the academic language.
When teaching pupils with English as an additional language, building vocabulary is key to progressing their level of English in all skills.
The conference will include stimulating presentations on a combination of research-based best practices and approaches, as well as opportunities for workshops and discussions.
