Meeting Description:

The 3rd workshop of the European Network for Teaching Arabic (ENTA-3) aims to build better understanding of the HL context and addresses possible techniques to accommodate and benefit from HLs in the AFL classroom. Prior to the workshop, participants will use provided templates to interview 1 – 2 HLs from their institutions. In the workshop, participants will reflect on the profile of their learners and possible approaches to integrating them in AFL programs. Participants will be introduced to Project-Based learning as a possible direction in addressing the needs of HLs. In pairs or small groups, participants will then create a unit/lesson plan based on the learner profile they have created. The workshop is held in conjunction with the with the Leiden-AUC 4th International Conference. Registration in the conference is required to participate in the workshop.

The workshop is held online via Zoom.
