Hi @fboss Struggling with the 1st cold of the term so don't know how long I'll last. Susan, Spanish teacher. #edchatie

@fboss Claire, PP teacher from Cork. Not sure what this weeks topic means. What are we helping with?!? :) #edchatie
Susan Leahy @susanleahy 05/09/2017 02:35:29 WIB
Also some concern on part of MFL colleagues online as to how to "promote" own subjects so they are not the ones cut for wellbeing #edchatie
Susan Leahy @susanleahy 05/09/2017 02:35:56 WIB
@clairenichan @fboss Hi Claire, MFL is Modern Foreign Languages, which are part of the new Junior Cycle from this year. #edchatie

@clairenichan It mentions Junior Cert/Cycle as well as Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) so we might be discussing both 😎 #edchatie
Claire Ní Chanainn @clairenichan 05/09/2017 02:37:27 WIB
@susanleahy @fboss I knew the acronym but didn't realise your new course was starting this year as well.We're struggling to understand Irish course. #edchatie
Susan Leahy @susanleahy 05/09/2017 02:37:47 WIB
ASTI MFL teachers couldn't attend JC training so would be great to have any tips from people who DID attend :) #edchatie #mflire
Claire Ní Chanainn @clairenichan 05/09/2017 02:38:25 WIB
@fboss Ahh, sorry I didn't realise there was a new MFL course. Madness to be teaching it without CPD. #edchatie
Niamh D @dennyisback 05/09/2017 02:38:35 WIB
Unsure of what department require re syllabi - one for all mfls or individual ones per language? #edchatie
Evelyn O'Connor @evelynoconnor 05/09/2017 02:38:39 WIB

Susan Leahy @susanleahy 05/09/2017 02:39:12 WIB
@sandrinepk Yes, I was surprised to see new emphasis on oral skills mentioned though I had thought oral had been removed?? #confused #edchatie
Susan Leahy @susanleahy 05/09/2017 02:39:35 WIB
@clairenichan @fboss But you are in same boat, or could you attend training? #edchatie
Sandrine Pac-Kenny @sandrinepk 05/09/2017 02:39:46 WIB
@dennyisback we are working as one in my school. French and German in 1st year. #edchatie

Sandrine Pac-Kenny @sandrinepk 05/09/2017 02:40:56 WIB
@susanleahy Oral as is currently for Junior cycle will not be in it. But oral will be part of it. #edchatie
Susan Leahy @susanleahy 05/09/2017 02:41:14 WIB
@clairenichan @fboss Also, yes madness but Science and Business (?) colleagues are worse off as they had no training, and are now into 2nd year of it #edchatie
