Languages Week Scotland 2021

Languages Week Scotland 2021 will take place during the week 1 – 5 February. The theme is ‘Celebrating Scotland’s languages landscape’ and the aim is to amplify the voices of people, organisations and events that celebrate multilingualism and the many ways it manifests in Scottish communities.  Now in its third year, Languages Week Scotland is a week of activity across the country.

Events will take place across Scotland for families, adults and schools. Follow the hashtag #scotlandloveslanguages or the dedicated Twitter account @LangsWeekScot to find out what is happening in your local area.

Languages Week Scotland 2021 want as many children, families, schools, communities and organisations as possible to engage with the week. To get involved in Languages Week Scotland 2021, use the hashtag #scotlandloveslanguages on Twitter. Please share the languages used or learned at home, in your school or in your wider context.  If you are planning an event or creating any resources, please share them with us, using the hashtag. When you contribute to raising the profile of languages and Languages Week Scotland, we amplify your voice too.

From 5 January 2021, partners can download the Languages Week Scotland 2021 logo from the website (Resources for Languages Week Scotland). Please do add to emails and other promotional materials to show your support. The @LangsWeekScot Twitter account will also be live that week.
