Offering strategies and techniques for teaching modern foreign languages - an often severely challenging subject for pupils with dyslexia - this book is specifically designed to meet the needs of the busy subject specialist teacher looking for guidance on supporting pupils. The book examines alternative approaches to teaching modern languages and introduces useful teaching materials and software. A list of references to resources and organizations offer the reader further assistance. While the book focuses on foreign language learning and teaching at the secondary level, ideas are provided on how to adapt the strategies for both younger and older foreign language learners with dyslexia. The book can be used effectively as a professional text for in-service and pre-service foreign language teachers as well as support staff.
