Derry’s language learners get new online resource

A new online resource aimed at helping learners in post primary education to discover more about the languages of English, Irish and Ulster-Scots is to be launched in Derry.

The project, titled CONNECT 3, was jointly designed and developed by Derry City Council and the Verbal Arts Centre to record young people’s attitudes to these languages.

The new website can be accessed at and includes a fun, interactive language awareness quiz with a range of teaching resources designed to complement specific areas within the NI post-primary curriculum.

The project will be officially launched by Derry’s mayor Maurice Devenney at the Verbal Arts Centre at 11:15am tomorrow.
