One of the biggest projects we undertook was the publication of the Language Explorers activity book. More than 300 copies of the book were sold in just a few months and the feedback has been fantastic. We have posted the book to most European countries and many copies have been shipped to the US, Africa and Asia. We hope that young Language Explorers around the world are enjoying it!
Twelve months ago Mother Tongues started offering visits in schools, library workshops and fun activities at festivals and events, all with the aim of celebrating and valuing linguistic diversity in our society and giving children the opportunity to use all of their languages through fun and engaging activities and games.
The project was awarded that European Language Label and this gave us the enthusiasm to continue to develop our plans!
To celebrate our birthday we are launching a new series of activity sheets that form a toolkit that accompanies the book. These can also be adapted creatively by teachers who are looking for ideas for multilingual classrooms.
The first activity sheet will be published in April.
