Welcome to Languages Week Scotland

Languages Week Scotland 2024

Languages Week Scotland is a celebration of language learning and multilingualism in Scotland. Now in its sixth year, Languages Week Scotland 2024 will take place from 29 January – 2 February and will be a week of activity across the country.

The theme for 2024 is “Languages for a sustainable world”. 

Languages Week Scotland 2024 aims to celebrate how languages – spoken and signed – equip us as individuals and as a society to contribute to a sustainable world. Educational establishments, community-based groups, arts and sports organisations, social enterprises and businesses – large and small – are invited to engage with the week. 

Follow the hashtag #ScotlandLovesLanguages or the dedicated Twitter account @LangsWeekScot.
