#ThinkLanguages TY Event

#ThinkLanguages 2022

#ThinkLanguages is back for its 5th year – so save the date Thursday 17 November 2022! More details will be shared on social media over the coming months.

In 2021, our flagship TY event went local again and was bigger than ever with around 150 schools taking part! 12,000 TYs from all over Ireland joined in a national celebration of languages and hosted #ThinkLanguages in their school. Check out our highlights reel from #ThinkLanguages 2021.

Fun & Enriching TY Experience

We called on TY students, TY coordinators and MFL teachers to manage their own local events. Languages Connect provided online support and event management kits including Student and Teacher Guides, posters and promotional material for the day.

A pre-recorded opening ceremony and range of online workshops in many different languages, and the chance to have a live workshop were also available to all schools.

Check out the highlights video from #ThinkLanguages 2020.

How to Think Global and Act Local for #ThinkLanguages?

Why not showcase the languages that are spoken in your school and used in your community? Explore how people use different languages in their lives, workplaces and families.

You can even get the Home Economics students to cook food from different countries and learn some new vocab that way! 

Maybe this year your team could get the local Primary School involved in some way?
