We’re highlighting inspiring projects happening across the country which are promoting languages to the wider public – showing those in the languages community what you could do, and helping to give those outside an insight into the value of languages and language learning.
These non-commercial projects share the spirit of the campaign and are helping us to reach our objectives. We’d like you to get in touch if you’ve got a great idea for a new initiative – or if you’re already doing something which is making a difference.
