Newcastle City of Languages is UK first. We are committed to promoting, supporting and celebrating languages and language learning across the city. We will add value to what is happening, share resources and expertise and create new opportunities.

Due to coronavirus, face to face meetings and events have been postponed or are being run online. We will endeavour to keep this page and website up to date with the latest developments. We welcome sharing of any online resources or support for language teaching and learning and will profile these on the Resources pages.
Making connections and sharing information
However there are some dedicated events, activities and resources relating to languages, which we are sharing through this section of our website. Information is updated regular and contributions are welcome. If you have anything to share, do get in touch.
There are a range of resources to support language learning, teaching promotion and we are grateful to partners for sharing these. This section covers resources for schools, wider language learning and English as an Additional Language. Online language and teaching resources have also been added, as a means to support people during the coronavirus pandemic.
Newcastle City of Languages is only possible due to partnership working and the collaboration of a myriad of partners locally, regionally, nationally and from other countries. Find out more about our partners and how we are working together.
