Puncture the monolingual bubble, break down language barriers and dip into the deep reservoir of words you carry within, with this course on *plurilingualism. Shaped by your experiences, your inner-vocabulary offers a fresh perspective that will bring new power to your work. You will move between languages. By the end of the day, you will have brought almost forgotten words out to play, found connections and stories once lost between languages, and, perhaps, have learned some new words along the way. Word lovers welcome.

*Plurilingualism here is used to denote the ability to move between languages, without the pressure to be fluent in all of them.

This course costs €130 (€110 for members).
