Activity book

The Language Explorers Activity book is an essential resource for teachers who want to embrace a multilingual approach in their teaching. 
The book is also the perfect gift for children who are passionate about languages and for those who speak more than one language.
The activities have been designed for primary school children by Dr Francesca La Morgia, a linguist with many years of experience in bilingualism research,  in collaboration with Jenny Siung, Head of Education at the Chester Beatty Library and Simon Rouse, primary school teacher.

Children are encouraged to learn the Irish Sign Language fingerspelling, solve problems, embrace a multilingual challenge, say hello in Yoruba and Romanian, explore their own surroundings and learn about the Chester Beatty Library, which contains thousands of treasures in many different languages.

The book is available in English and in Irish, thanks to the support of Gaeloideachas.
