The ECML was delighted to welcome Denis Cunningham to its premises today. Denis is Managing Director of DACE Services, Linguapax Advisory Board Member, Honorary Counsellor and former President and Secretary General of Fédération Internationale des Professeurs de Langues Vivantes (FIPLV) – one of the members of the ECML Professional Network Forum.
This was an excellent opportunity to discuss the FIPLV Nordic-Baltic Region Conference “Future of languages” which will be held in Reykjavik, Iceland, on 8-9 June 2023. The event will give teachers of languages and others interested in this theme an opportunity to evaluate the past, re-evaluate the present and consider the future of languages, language learning and teaching, as well as policy making – specifically in the Baltic and Nordic regions. Sarah Breslin, Executive Director of the ECML” will be one of the guest speakers with her keynote “Inspiring innovation in language education; changing contexts, evolving competences.”
Terry Lamb, current President of FIPLV, was also able to join the meeting as he is currently participating in the preparation of the ECML Summer academy, which will take place on 3-7 July.
