Gallery: St Mary’s National School Malin Head says ‘Yes’ to Languages ​​- Page 1 of 8

Over 40 third to sixth class pupils from St. Mary’s National School recently took part in the Primary Language Sampler module, ‘Say Yes to Languages’ this term.

The module, which is being made available for the second year following its extension by the Department of Education, was met with overwhelming enthusiasm last year and this interest looks set to continue with 700 schools having registered to take part in 2022/2023.

‘Say Yes To Languages’ offers an introduction into a variety of modern foreign languages ​​and Irish Sign Language (ISL) while also looking to raise awareness among pupils of the diversity of languages ​​being used by their peers in their schools and community.

Over 500 schools took part in the module last year, which saw French, Spanish, ISL, German, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, Romanian, Arabic, Lithuanian, Polish, Tamil and Portuguese being taught across the country. St. Mary’s NS pupils spent their time learning all about French Language and Culture and even had a day of sampling delicacies such as Les Crêpes.
