If you are anywhere near Canberra this week you should try to make it to this very special event set up to celebrate the International Year of Languages.
Apart from more than two dozen stalls representing organisations and language learning opportunities, and as well as information on up to 20 weekend ethnic schools representing a wide range of languages, there is a spectacular range of workshops and seminars on language topics.
There are so many sessions there will sometimes be up to six running simultaneously in different venues.
I don’t know how you choose between sessions on topics as diverse as reviving and preserving indigenous languages, how the latest technology can help language learning, the role of non-verbal languages, oral language learning, written language learning, early childhood education, adult education, policy development, careers information – it’s an amazing line-up.
