Teachers and schools

We support teachers in developing innovative approaches to encourage multilingualism and heritage language maintenance

Building Connections

We provide opportunities for teachers from community language schools/Saturday schools to build connections and learn new skills.

Inspiring teachers

We inspire primary school teachers to use simple techniques to make sure their students can successfully learn through English and Irish without giving up their mother tongue. When teachers are confident in their approach to welcoming all languages equally children grow confident in their identity and feel that their heritage is valued by the school.

Innovative language experiences

We create experiences for schools that make language fun, exciting and meaningful. We have developed an innovative approach to include all languages in a meaningful way by involving parents.

Projects to build connections

We provide opportunities for community language teachers to build connections and learn new skills.

What people say

We love the Language Explorers programme! It draws children's attention to languages in the environment and gives them the opportunity to explore language in a creative and fun way. For children who are bilingual or multilingual, it gives their home language a status in the classroom, it brings their language into everyday learning. The children further develop their sense of pride in their language and love to share it with others. For our staff, the workshops model good practice and help them to see that sharing home languages is positive, enriching and most importantly, very easy to do!

Thank you so much for the really wonderful set of workshops you did for our school yesterday. The children thoroughly enjoyed their time with the ‘Language Explorers’ becoming aware of the variety of different languages spoken in our classrooms and being encouraged to embrace all languages positively! The teachers gave really great feedback and were very happy with the standard of the workshops and the level of involvement of the children. Everyone really enjoyed the day. Our school will definitely be in contact with you early in the new school year to discuss further ways we can collaborate with you all.
