FLIP - The Cramlington Model For Developing Independent Language Learners

FLIP stands for Flexible Learner-led Intervention Personalised. It is a daring approach that consisted in getting rid 1/3 of the content taught in MFL to concentrate on developing independent learning skills in languages. It was started last year by Chris Harte at Cramlington Learning Village in Northumberland.
The video says it all... (truly inspirational!)

Thanks for this video! It was great to hear the students be able to articulate their learning objectives and their plan for achieving those objectives. Looks like they're doing real good work. I'm posting a link to the post on our Facebook Page.

Thanks for sharing this!

Thought there were some really great ideas in there that would work with TEFL, & I'll be looking into the FLIP Languages model further.

Wow! Inspiring indeed. I particularly like the idea of pupils having more choice as too much directed learning is never a good thing. Pupils feel listened to and the kids in the video were genuinely engaged and v clued up in terms of what they were learning and why. Well done Chris and team.
