    Learning environments where modern languages flourish

Learning environments where modern languages flourish

As an individual teacher, headteacher, or perhaps together with all your colleagues, would you like to create an environment where languages are at the very heart of learning and teaching? The EOL website presents holistic pathways for individual classes and for schools to set up learning environments which can release educational potential, for and through languages.

This website offers tools for the development of whole-school language projects to support and strengthen cooperation and professional development of all actors involved. The suggested approach combines cultural aspects (contents, values and objectives), structural conditions (organisation, means and spaces) and personal factors (human resources, personal and professional development) which help reveal what learning environments are all about. This holistic perspective embraces all fields of education (learning, teaching, schools and education systems) and all levels of education (primary, secondary and tertiary). Furthermore, it enables key actors in schools to develop sustainable connections across all learning environments. Schools are guided towards creative thinking in order to find new solutions for language learning and teaching adapted to the needs of learners. 

All the tools have been tested by partner schools involved in the EOL project between 2016 and 2019. The experience of these schools offers inspiration to start a language project connecting culture, structures and people at your school with the aim to create learning environments where modern languages flourish.

35 proposals

We, the members of the EOL team, who have based our research on the creation of learning environments optimised by and for languages, would like to offer you a selection of 35 ideas to help you envisage and organise the best learning environment, adapted to the needs of young people.
