Primary School Languages Sampler

The Languages Connect Sampler Module is an initiative that allows participating Primary Schools to identify a Modern Foreign Language of their choice or Irish Sign Language (ISL). It takes place over a six week period for up to one hour a week, within the normal timetable and is targeted at third to sixth class pupils. 

The initial Expression of Interest closed on 23 June 2021 and application numbers were high. Successful applicants will be informed by Friday 27 August.
