2019 has been a fantastic year for Language Explorers! We have started a newsletter for schools, which has rapidly gained many subscribers, and we have visited schools, libraries and festivals, bringing language fun to more than 1,000 children!
The Language Explorers activity book was shipped to new countries including the Netherlands, France, Germany, Switzerland, Canada and the US and it has been adopted as a teacher resource in schools in Ireland, Switzerland and the UK. The book is now available in university libraries where trainee teachers can use the book to get inspiration for their multilingual classroom.
More than 300 teachers across Ireland, the UK and Switzerland received training on plurilingual approaches to teaching using this resource, and more training sessions are already planned for 2020 not only in Ireland, but also in Germany and Nothern Ireland.
This year we created great memories, some of which you can read about in our previous blog posts, but in these pictures you can see some of the highlights, which include our participation in Kaleidoscope Festival and in Reimagine Tallaght.
