#ThinkLanguages 2022

#ThinkLanguages is back for its 5th year – save the date Thursday 17 November 2022! More details will be shared on social media soon – so follow Languages Connect on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for all the latest updates.

Our flagship TY Student event is going local again and we hope this year will be bigger and better than ever! Your school can join hundreds of others nationwide in a national celebration of languages and cultures this November. Check out some highlights from #ThinkLanguages 2021.

Fun & Enriching TY Experience

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

A pre-recorded opening ceremony, fun interactive quiz and range of online workshops in many different languages are also available to all schools. Live workshops will also be allocated to many schools nationwide.

Check out the highlights video from #ThinkLanguages 2020.

 

#ThinkLanguages Champion Team

The first thing you’ll need to do is appoint a #ThinkLanguages Champion Team of TY students and a #ThinkLanguages Team Lead (TY Coordinator or MFL Teacher) to help organise your event. Teams can compete for the National Award of #ThinkLanguages Champion Team of the Year 2022 and win a fantastic prize for your school.

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?
