The Poliglotti4.eu On-line Language Observatory
The On-line Language Observatory will serve as a platform for organisations and
individuals interested in all aspects of multilingualism. It will not only offer
comprehensive up-to-date information on events, news, publications and the latest
research and resources but will also stimulate the debate around language learning
and language policies. Our language ambassadors are lending their voice and image
to the cause of multilingualism and the promotion of language learning and language
diversity in Europe.
It is web 2.0 compliant and linked to all major social networking platforms, making it
easier for users to share available content and make it accessible to a wider audience.
Although the Poliglotti4.eu project was awarded EU co-funding until the end of
2012, the Language Observatory will continue in the long term. Examples of best
practice will thus continue to be uploaded and shared with stakeholders.
