#ThinkLanguages – Request for Information Survey
Posted on Tuesday September 8, 2020
Calling all MFL Teachers and TY Coordinators – we need your help to make #ThinkLanguages 2020 happen! We hope that we can still hold #ThinkLanguages in a more localised way in 2020 – but to do this we need to understand how it would work best in your school. In 2020, we hope that our annual celebration of foreign languages #ThinkLanguages can be transformed into a national event, held locally in secondary schools across the country. We hope this would happen across Ireland on Monday 7th December. We can provide assistance online, workshops and talks but we hope that TY coordinators, MFL teachers and TY students could work together to organise local events, get local speakers involved and find out more about the foreign languages spoken in their locality. However, we fully appreciate the challenges that schools are facing right now. We need your input, to help shape what is possible in your school environment and within the TY timetable for the 2020/2021 school year. Each school has its own policies and challenges, so we would be interested to hear from those interested, as well as those that think it may not work, and the reasons why. This may help us work out alternative solutions for your school. We will be entering all those who help us with this survey and respond by Wednesday 16th September into a lottery for a €100 One4All voucher. Thank you!
