In 2020, for the European Day of Languages (26th September every year), I recycled an old (classic) idea in one of my schools: each class chose a European country and did some research on it. Then each child got given a piece of bunting (triangular card) where, depending on their age, they either drew a flag, wrote a word or a phrase (for instance “my name is”) in the language of that country etc. Finally in each class or the school hall, the bunting got displayed. They used the “Languages take you further” booklet as a reference: click here to download it, it is a great one!
