My talk at TEDxGranta

Aprilo 22, 2012

A couple of months ago, I happened to read that the lineup of speakers for TEDxGranta was “almost complete”. From that I learnt (a) that there was going to be a TEDx event in Cambridge, and (b) they were still looking for people to speak.  🙂  I punted them a CV and a proposed title, and no doubt after hours of weighing me up against a huge raft of unsuccessful candidates*, they accepted the proposal. Yay!

It’s about the Springboard to Languages programme. It’s the best thing I know of for getting primary school kids actually using a foreign language, and it deserves more recognition and take-up than it gets.

So, without further ado, here’s what I did. Enjoy!
