International Education Week: Promoting language learning worldwide

Visit website

Event Date: 18/11/2013 - 24/11/2013

International Education Week (IEW) is an opportunity to promote the importance of building an international dimension into the education of young people in the UK at primary and secondary levels. We know that familiarity with other cultures and modern foreign languages skills are an essential part of preparing young people to work in the increasingly globalised economy.

International Education Week celebrates the value of international work in encouraging young people to:

  • become global citizens
  • develop language skills
  • improve their chances of employment in a global economy

Visit the British Council website for more information and ideas on how to celebrate.
