Languages Connect:

The Awareness Raising Campaign

Languages Connect is a campaign to raise awareness of the importance of foreign languages which was launched by the Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton T.D. on the 17th September.  The campaign is aimed at school principals, teachers, guidance counsellors, parents, students and higher level institutions. Embassies, cultural services and bodies such as IBEC and Enterprise Ireland (EI) are also involved in supporting the campaign to raise awareness of the importance of learning foreign languages.

The campaign is supported by a new website (www.languagesconnect.ie) which will act as a one stop shop for schools, parents and students on language learning.

Have you looked at any of the Languages for Work videos?

Any more suggestions?  We’d love to hear them!
