Raising the profile of languages in your school
As part of our work we would like to support teachers and schools in raising the profile of languages in post-primary schools. In order to do this, we have compiled a list of suggestions to help modern foreign language teachers raise the profile of languages in their school, most of which require zero budget. Begin with a few and increase the numbers of suggestions you act on over time and collaborate with colleagues across language departments. Please send us your own suggestions too and we can add them to the list.
This Strategy has been developed in the context of Action 1.6 of the Department’s Action Plan for Education 2016-2019 which aims to enable learners to communicate effectively and improve their standards of competence in languages and so fulfil our ambition to make Ireland’s education system the best in Europe within the next decade.
