Funder: AHRC Languages Acts and Worldmaking – November 2018

Summary of outcomes:

  1. Presentation of outreach projects at APPG for Modern Languages in October 2018. This event involved mentors, mentees and teachers involved in the project from across Wales.
  2. Meetings with European colleagues at the Welsh Higher Education Bureau (WHEB) in November 2018 which resulted in a partnership between Cardiff University’s School of Modern Languages and the Castilla y León Regional Government. This resulted in eight final-year undergraduate students being recruited and trained to mentor in Spain as part of a final-year module, the Student Teaching Module. Click here for more info.
