Languages in Schools


Welcome back to school from the team at PPLI. We have been busy all summer preparing for our biggest and most exciting year ever!
1,200 primary schools will take part in our Say Yes to Languages Module this year, our Languages Connect Summit will bring together language teachers and stakeholders in October, and our annual #ThinkLanguages event has expanded to a week-long festival in November. Our Leaving Cert Saturday Classes kick off this week too and we have lots of interesting info sessions and events happening right across September.
The Languages Connect Summit will bring together inspiring speakers, a wide range of interactive workshops and a host of exciting exhibitors at the Convention Centre Dublin on Saturday 14 October. Language teachers will have the opportunity to collaborate, celebrate and be inspired at this unmissable event. Registration is open now and spaces are filling fast! The full programme and registration are available here>>

Le blianta anuas tá an t-ionad oibre tar éis athrú agus tá i bhfad níos mó teangacha le cloisteáil ann anois. Sa phaca gníomhaíochta seo, tá cleachtaí a dhíríonn aird an scoláire ar theangacha san ionad oibre. Cuirtear béim ar fheasacht teanga, ar fheasacht chultúir, ar chaidreamh le comhghleacaithe san ionad oibre agus go sóisialta tar éis na hoibre. Féach paca anois>>
