M13032 Languages-Connect #ThinkLanguages Register-Flyer - Flipbook - Page 1
Monday 7th December 2020
We don’t want any TY student to miss out
on #ThinkLanguages this year so we hope
to work together with you to re-create the
event in schools all over Ireland.
How is it going to work in 2020?
We’re calling on TY students, TY coordinators and MFL teachers to manage
your own local event with the support of the Languages Connect team.
Languages Connect will provide online support and event management kits
including Student and Teacher Guides, posters, flyers and promotional material
for the day e.g. bunting, merchandise & prizes.
We are setting up an online #ThinkLanguages Hub, where regular updates
and downloads will be available. We will contact all those registered as soon
as this is live.
A mix of supports including streamed keynote speakers, online workshops,
and the chance to have a live workshop or speaker at your school will also be
made available to registered schools.
How do you Think Global and Act Local?
Each school will also be given the opportunity to invite local speakers,
workshops and businesses to take part and support their event.
Why not showcase the languages that are spoken in your school and used in
your community? Explore how people use different languages in their lives,
workplaces and families.
Maybe you can even get the Home Economics students to cook food from
different countries and learn some new vocab that way!
#ThinkLanguages Champion Team
We’d like you to appoint a #ThinkLanguages Champion Team of TY students
and a #ThinkLanguages Team Lead (TY Coordinator or MFL Teacher) to help
organise your event.
