If you’re an Irish person who teaches, researches, writes or creates in an area related to language-learning, the following information sent to me by Léargas might be of interest.
Léargas is looking for language projects and potential language ambassadors to apply for the European Language Label. It’s a languages award with two sections, projects and individuals. “Projects” can cover anything and everything, from short term to ongoing, from online to tangible and from community group to university research. Very wide-ranging, but the jury look at each and every project in its own context. This year the individual award is for “language ambassador”, the jury quite often select a number of language ambassadors rather than just one single person. The title is recognition and acknowledgement and a nice awards ceremony, it doesn’t involve any tasks. There are posters, application forms and short video clips of past winners on www.leargas.ie/ell The deadline for applications is 27 February 2015. We look forward to receiving your application!
