Languages Connect – Ireland’s Strategy for Foreign Languages in Education 2017-2026 was launched in December 2017 by the Minister for Education and Skills, Richard Bruton to support Action 1.6 of the Department’s Action Plan for Education 2016-2019 to help learners to become effective communicators.
The Strategy’s vision is to create a society where the opportunity to learn and use one foreign language is taken for granted because of its value for individuals, society and the economy.
There are many supports available to you as a parent or guardian to help and encourage your child to learn foreign languages. Please discuss with your child’s school or contact us.
In the meantime, why not read our ‘Fact Sheet for Parents‘ about why our students should study a foreign language at Leaving Certificate.
