Learning environments where modern languages flourish

The European Centre for Modern Languages (ECML) of the Council of Europe is pleased to announce the completion in both English, French and German of its EOL resource website “Learning environments where modern languages flourish” (www.ecml.at/learningenvironments), an output of the ECML programme “Languages at the heart of learning” (2016-2019).

This website offers a wide range of tools to create whole-school learning environments where languages are at the very heart of learning and teaching. This holistic approach supports and strengthens cooperation and professional development of all actors involved – language teachers, subject teachers, teacher educators, as well as headteachers – and embraces all fields of education – learning, teaching, schools and education systems.

At a time when schools are cautiously reopening across Europe, we are convinced that the EOL tools and resources can help develop and strengthen quality language education, which celebrates linguistic and cultural diversity and is so essential today to ensure intercultural dialogue, linguistic and cultural diversity and social cohesion in our societies.
