Find out about SpeakApps tools to celebrate the European Day of Languages!

On 26 September, the SpeakApps team invites you to take part in the event to celebrate European Day of Languages, which will be held simultaneously in five European cities: Barcelona (Spain), Dublin (Ireland), Groningen (Holland), Krakow (Poland) and Jyväskylä (Finland). Designed for foreign language teachers, SpeakApps is a multilingual European project which offers free tools and methodologies online to encourage language students to practice oral skills.

The common part of the event for all the cities is the opening speech that will be given by David Singleton, professor of Applied Linguistics at Trinity College Dublin, who will talk about the role of age and learning environment in second language acquisition. The conference will start at 3.30 p.m. (CEST) and will be available via streaming through this website. Don’t hesitate to send us your questions, remarks and feedback about the conference via Twitter with the hashtag #speakappsEDL.

The event will continue with local workshops in every city, where you can try out the SpeakApps online tools. You can get more information about the programmes in Barcelona here (in Catalan) and Groningen here. For information about the other cities, please contact your local partner here.
