We are delighted to have seven S6 students from across Scotland taking part in SCILT’s 2023-24 Digital Internship programme. Their remit is to engage 15-18 years olds with language learning through social media.

This will be the fifth time the internship programme has taken place, with previous cohorts having received training from the SCILT and CISS communications teams, the Marketing team from the Faculty of Humanities at the University of Strathclyde and from RadioLingua. Interns are supported by the SCILT and CISS communications teams throughout their internship to collaborate to produce regular, engaging content. 

We look forward to working with this year's team!

Meet our team of interns joining us for the 2023-24 academic session. Find out more about them in their profiles below.

Our teams of digital interns have a great track record in producing original content aimed at promoting the benefits of language learning to their peers. Take a look at @zinguistics, the Instagram account of our 2022-23 digital interns and @zinguistics on TikTok. You can also visit @langwiches, our 2021-22 digital interns' Instagram and their @langwiches TikTok account. The Instagram account of the 2020-21 digital interns @langueyou is also still available to view. We first ran this project as a pilot in 2018-19. You can see the content these digital interns produced on the Speak Lingua Instagram page and Twitter profile.
