Language Exchange on Borders: Debating and Spoken Language Skills

Language Exchange on Borders

With this project, Language Exchange on Borders, the focus is on a language exchange between Irish students and native speakers, using debating and spoken language skills.

The exchange was between 6th year students in an Irish school and students of a similar age in a French school.

The project had several aims:

  • to develop students’ oral skills and confidence in speaking
  • to expand students’ cultural and geopolitical awareness
  • to encourage students to give their opinion on topics relevant for the Irish Leaving Certificate/the French
