The European Language Label Awards took place in Ireland this week. One of the award winners on the day was Teanga. This exciting new development in the field of language learning is an online picture and voice-based language learning system. It uses a set of images and symbols common to all languages and dispenses with text, so that students build confidence by focusing on speaking and listening. Students can use the website autonomously to ‘mash’ picture-words within visually structured language patterns.
