Join us for a CPD for teachers designed to demonstrate some simple drama activities and games to use in their classroom to promote language learning.

There will be a short introduction of the Multilingual Performance Project followed by a practical workshop. We would love to welcome all teachers who have an interest in multilingualism, foreign languages and Irish; any level, any language, all welcome! The project is sponsored by Creative Multilingualism, a research programme led by the University of Oxford and funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council.

Daniel Tyler-McTighe is the Director of Creative Multilingualism’s Multilingual Performance Project. As a theatre-maker he has created work with, by and for young people and community groups at the national theatres of Spain and Korea, Warsaw Palace of Culture and many UK settings.

This year the Mother Tongues Festival has partnered with Languages Connect to offer two Continuing Professional Development courses that will equip teachers with new skills to to encourage children’s interest in languages through creative expression. Suitable for foreign language or heritage language teachers, teachers of Irish and teachers with multilingual classrooms, both at primary and secondary level.
