New Year, New Projects!
The year 2012 will see lots of diversification in Island Voices work. The broad aim is to continue local activity that supports bilingual development in the community. That will certainly include ongoing support for language classes run by Cothrom and other groups, but will not be restricted to that. In particular, we aim to assist “community voices” in making their presence felt through online fora, for example through blogging, and in local media such as Am Pàipear – in text, audio and/or video formats. We will also maintain links with European projects, such as the new TOOLS project, with a view to testing the usefulness and effectiveness of new technological developments in a real-life community context. And, through continued partnership with Soillse, we will also aim to document and evaluate the impact of these activities on local language use. Plenty to be getting on with! As always, comments and questions are welcome.
