In order to acquire language, multilingual learners need lots of comprehensible input. In this interactive edWebinar, you will experience comprehensible input activities that support students’ ability to understand spoken English in podcasts and videos.

These strategies work for all students, especially experienced multilinguals at intermediate stages of language development. The strategies will build your students’ confidence, enhance their ability to understand oral English in a variety of settings, and make language acquisition joyful!

This edWebinar will be of interest to elementary through high school teachers, school and district leaders, and education technology leaders. There will be time for questions at the end of the presentation.
