There’s a lot going on in Sheffield over the next week. The Festival Of The Mind is a collaboration between the University of Sheffield and Sheffield City Council to celebrate and promote culture, creativity and innovation in Sheffield.
Of particular interest to us is a series of language related events under the name of The World in our City: Languages Live! These include workshops, talks, poetry and storytelling. All of which aim to promote the varied linguistic culture of Sheffield, as well as the benefits of language learning.
More information on Languages Live! can be found here
The full programme of Languages Live! events (in pdf format) can be downloaded here
So if you’re interested in languages, go along and get involved!
This project is led by Terry Lamb, Professor of Languages and Teaching at the University of Sheffield and Dr Mike Reynolds, trustee of Languages Sheffield, a charity that promotes lifelong language learning, and also provides links between the many different language resources throughout the city.
Languages Sheffield are also involved in events throughout the year – see their website for further information here
