Think differently! Try something new! Creating a climate for innovation in language learning: “If we always do what we always done, we’ll always get what we’ve always got!”

More than ever the world needs young people who are internationally-minded and able to participate positively in an interconnected and interdependent world. This means promoting a step change in our approach to multilingualism and cultural awareness. The British Council is running a workshop to explore new ideas in language learning, at which it will launch the ‘Think differently’ project and invite teachers to join an international network of incubator schools engaging in a series of micro-projects to explore new approaches to language learning. The workshop will look at innovative teaching from around the world, and aims to bring together people from different fields, including informal educators, technologists and change leaders, as well as teachers, to share perspectives and experiences. To attend in person at the British Council office in Trafalgar Square in London, or participate live online through the website.
