Dual language programs across NYC have received considerable attention in the last years in an effort to provide more inclusive and equitable classroom experience for diverse student communities. In order to celebrate the multitude of languages at the heart of dual language programs, the European Union National Institutes for Culture (EUNIC), EU diplomatic community and the China Institute cordially invite to a networking event on the European Day of Languages.

A first of its kind, the event aims at introducing and connecting NYC´s educational community to EU institutions and their resources. It intends to open up space for mutual dialogue and to brainstorm about how to join forces towards supporting and expanding dual language programs in the city.

We will showcase successful dual language programs in the public educational system, a panel comparing European and US- models in bilingual education, step-by-step workshops on how to globalize the classroom, mini-language lessons (European languages), and panel discussions with educational experts on approaches to inclusive education.

EUNIC is Europe’s network of national cultural institutes, with 36 members from 28 EU member states and offices in over 150 countries. EUNIC members work in the arts, languages, youth, education, science, society and intercultural dialogue. They are uniquely positioned to showcase best case practices in bilingual education, schools and pedagogical concepts from both, the EU and the US.

For Department of Education employees, superintendents, principals, teachers, world languages coordinators, guidance and career counselors.

Program TBA soon.
RSVP by Sept. 5th, 2019
