Discover the weird and wonderful world of languages! Join us on a journey to uncover the hidden treasures of languages through our family-friendly, hands-on activities and games. Come and be inspired by the work of our flagship research project Multilingualism: Empowering Individuals, Transforming Societies

Languages and me

Why should we bother to learn languages? You may be surprised to find out:
• how learning a language can boost your brain power
• how many languages you already know without even realising
• where languages can take you in life

Languages around me

All you have to do is stop, look and listen! Here, you will explore:
• different accents, and your reactions to them
• translating the untranslatable… can it be done?
• how YouTube, books and TV in other languages can open your eyes to new worlds

Languages in the world

There are thousands of different languages in the world! Here, you will discover:
• which languages are most spoken and which are in danger
• whether some languages are trickier than others
• the different sounds and writing systems languages use

Languages are fun and all around us – We are looking forward to welcoming you!
