Transition Year is a great time to start new things and learn a new language! Our annual #ThinkLanguages TY Event gives students the opportunity to experience many elements of foreign language and culture outside the classroom. Languages are brought to life through interactive workshops, interesting guest speakers, fun competitions, food tasting and the chance to meet exhibitors.

Learn a new language
There are options to study a language during a part of your Transition Year. Currently, we offer short modules in Japanese and Russian. If you would like to study one of these modules and it is not currently available in your school then contact us
Try Teaching Primary Pupils some languages!
One successful project has been the teaching of a foreign language in a Primary School. TY students design, plan and deliver a lesson or series of lessons for primary school schools in the language that they have been taught.
Here is a video of TY students in Coláiste Bhríde in Carnew, Co. Wicklow embarking on a project to teach French to 5th and 6th class in their local primary school.
