Welcome to Our Languages
The Our Languages project ran from 2007-2009. Please note that this website is no longer maintained. Content and links in this section, including linked pages, may be out of date.
We promote community languages teaching and learning through partnerships between complementary and mainstream schools.
The 'Our Languages' project supports community languages teaching and learning and aims to encourage community cohesion, celebrate pupil achievement and promote plurilingualism. Regional partnerships across England involve schools in the project in a variety of activities. We also provide information on accreditation, community language provision in your local area as well as current research, events and links related to community languages education. See 'About Us' for more information.
