'Speak to the Future' campaign

AULC is a participant in the national 'Speak to the Future' campaign, launched on February 15th 2011. In particular, we support Objective 4: "Every graduate qualified in a second language
This will prepare future leaders in business, the professions, voluntary organisations, education and research to thrive and communicate confidently in complex global societies "

As part of this campaign several AULC members celebrated the Festival of Languages on or around March 8th (Mardi Gras) in 2011. Read reports of these events. In 2014 Mardi Gras will be on March 4th, when we hope more celebrations will take place.
