Languages play an important role in advancing cultural diversity and development. Our communities are awash with people from over 200 different nationalities: Poland, Brazil, China, India, Romania, South Africa, Slovenia, etc. They have become and will continue to be part of our identity … for good. Learning other languages increases our ability to communicate and understand other cultures. There is perhaps no surer way to foster partnerships and cross-cultural cooperation.
- Visit a foreign embassy, consulate or diplomatic mission in Ireland
- Attend a language or cultural centre event
- Join a local language exchange
You’re probably not going to learn an entire languages in one day. But this will be the beginning of an exhilarating and highly rewarding experience.
