Dr Gianfranco Conti returns to IGS

IGS was fortunate to welcome leading international languages educator Dr Gianfranco Conti back to the School this week.

An audience of teachers from various other Sydney schools observed Dr Conti’s demonstration lessons with a Year 9 Spanish class and a Year 6 Italian class.

The workshop brought teachers together to explore the neuroscience of language learning, contemporary research and its hands-on implications for teaching.

The experience gave our students a chance to present their language skills in a new and engaging environment.


Dr Conti is the co-author of the guide for language teachers The Language Teacher Toolkit and is internationally renowned for his award-winning blog, The Language Gym.

The event reaffirmed the unique IGS identity as a leading languages school, boosting collaboration and inspiring staff in their shared quest for achieving educational excellence.
