Language Explorers

Every Language Matters

Language Explorers is Mother Tonguesaward-winning language awareness initiative for primary schools. Language Explorers activities are designed to raise awareness of linguistic diversity in the classroom and in the community and to promote an interest in language learning.

Language Explorers has been designed to:

encourage children to embrace all languages positively

nurture children’s understanding of linguistic diversity in the classroom and in the community they live in

enable children to build on prior knowledge and experience of language and language learning

encourage children of different languages and cultures to be proud of and to share their heritage

Through interactive games, art making, singing, storytelling and story writing, children become aware of their own language abilities and learn something new about each other and about the people who live in their local communities. Mother Tongues deliver Language Explorers Workshops all over Ireland.

We also provide training for teachers who want to implement this approach in their own school. Download our the Language Explorers starter pack to find out more.
