We are delighted to welcome the launch of the study The Impact and Experience of Foreign Languages in the Context of Erasmus+ in All Education Sectors in Ireland by Dr. Britta C. Jung. This study was commissioned by Léargas and the Higher Education Authority to explore how Erasmus+ influences attitudes to and experience of foreign language learning.

The study was conducted in the broader context of the Government’s Action Plan for Education 2016-2019 and Languages Connect, Ireland’s Strategy for Foreign Languages in Education 2017-2026.

It discusses the Erasmus+ programme, specifically in relation to Ireland and the way it relates to language learning. It builds on existing scholarship in applied linguistics and international education, combining qualitative and quantitative data. Where existing studies have almost exclusively focused on Higher Education, Dr Jung’s study includes data on Erasmus+ participants from all Irish education sectors. The study highlights key issues and maps language options available to Irish learners across the different education sectors.

The publication will be formally launched on the 28th of May.
