Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

North West

Routes into Languages North West

Routes into Languages is a national project to encourage and enthuse young people to learn languages.

The programme has created a number of regional consortia, where universities are working together, along with schools and colleges, to promote language learning. The Routes North West consortium is led by Manchester Metropolitan University, in partnership with the University of Manchester, University of Central Lancashire and the University of Liverpool.

The Routes into Languages project offers events and initiatives that enthuse and motivate pupils to take up and continue with language learning. These include the Mother Tongue Other Tongue National competition, our Language League: Kick Off resources for teachers and pupils in French, Spanish, German & Arabic, Language Enrichment Events (Year 8 pupils); Film and Culture Events (Year 9 & 10); Essay Writing for Film (Year 12 & 13) and GCSE & A Level Days. INSET and CPD sessions for teachers are programmed throughout the year.
