About this Event

The Second Mother Tongues Conference on Heritage Language Education in Ireland will take place on 2nd November 2019.

Our main goal is to bring together teachers, researchers and policymakers who have an interest in promoting heritage language education in Ireland.

The conference creates a unique opportunity to share experiences and ideas on teaching heritage languages within and outside of the Irish educational system, supporting childhood bilingualism and the maintenance of minority languages in Ireland.

Our speakers from Technological University Dublin, Dublin City University, post-Primary Language Initiative, Migrant Teacher Project and supplementary language schools will give presentations and run workshops on:

- 2nd language acquisition and childhood bilingualism

- Minority languages in Irish schools

- Networks of heritage language schools in Ireland

- ICT in support of teaching and learning heritage languages
