Languages Connect Summit - Saturday 14 October 2023

The inaugural Languages Connect Summit will take place on Saturday 14 October 2023 at the Convention Centre Dublin.

The event will bring together education stakeholders involved in Modern Foreign Language (MFL) Teaching and Learning. Working in collaboration with the Department of Education, PDST, JCT, COGG and Leargas, the Summit will inspire the future of language Teaching and Learning in Ireland.

We are inviting all MFL teachers, PME students, Foreign Language Assistants, teachers from the complementary sector, and language education providers at all levels. Come to celebrate languages, collaborate with colleagues, be inspired by keynote speakers, participate in interactive workshops and meet a wide range of exhibitors.
