A new blog, a new beginning

So, this is my first post on this brand spanking new blog.

First, let me introduce myself. My name is Samantha Lunn, and I am Head of Spanish at a school in the north west of England. I am the webmistress of www.languagesresources.co.ukand I have been known in the virtual world of the TES, previously as SpanishSam and now, as LingoLass.

For the past three years I have taught both French and Spanish, and I try to actively seek ways of using ICT in the classroom to enhance both teaching and learning.

I enjoy working in partnership with the University of Cumbria (previously St Martin’s College – see our old group blog at http://stmartinsmfl.wordpress.com) , I am in the process of mentoring my first trainee teacher, and I am also completing an MA module on mentoring.

I have recently delved into the depths of Twitter and Delicious and really enjoy stumbling across other teachers’ blogs as I like to read what other people have to say (maybe I am just nosy!) and I thought that it was high time that I put my thoughts down on paper. I especially enjoy the blogs of Joe Dale, Jose Picardo, Isabelle Jones and many more. I hope to talk about these in a future post.

It is now getting a wee bit late on a school night for me to write much more, however, over the coming days I aim to give a brief account of what I have been doing recently both in the classroom and out, both with MFL and ICT.

For now, goodnight.

  1. Hello, I found your blog interesting as my husband and I in our language program, are researching the same issues. And since you indicated that your were always on the lookout for new blogs (and perhaps additional resourcs for you students), I thought I would pass on mine where I don’t teach Spanish, (that’s my husband’s job) but I do talk about the process of learning Spanish and I think much of what becomes obstacles for people trying to learn another language has to do with the how it feels and what it takes emotionally and psychologically. So check it out and I would be interested in what you think of what I have to say…..http://rojasspanish.wordpress.com/ Check out our language program as well….we have a zillion (well almost) people from the UK that tune into our Podcast and subscribe to our Video program, the number is second only to those listeners and subscribers from the US, though I must say, sometimes you guys beat out our guys. Thanks for your post, I will be reading!!!! Saludos, Joan
