The new Routes into Languages website is currently in development and will be launching in the new year!


Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

Active Languages Case Studies

After the success of the Active Languages project which took place in 2009, the schools involved complied their resources and produced case studies in order to enable other schools to put together similar events.

In partnership with the Youth Sport Trust, Routes into Languages Yorkshire & The Humber (Routes Y&H) coordinated this cross-curricular project aiming to take languages out of the classroom and combine fun language learning with sports and exercise.

Schools were able to bid for a £1000 grant, funded by Routes Y&H. With this they had to implement their language and sport project in their school, and embed it into the syllabus to enable the project to be sustainable going forward.

The following booklet contains case studies detailing the successful Active Languages projects which have been running over the past year. Additionally, there is a booklet of resources, and links to Power Point presentations produced by the teachers at the schools.

We hope you enjoy these resources, and find them useful when implementing activities involving languages and sport in your own schools!
