ENDANGERED LANGUAGES is an interactive e-learning module on the Internet developed for the last three years of secondary schools, developed by Cecilia Ode from the University of Amsterdam (former FIPLV Editor of Publications) and is part of the NWO Endangered Language Research Programme. The module comes in a Dutch and an English version.

The module consists of two lessons, which can be used in an interdisciplinary way. Rich in colourful films and sounds, the resource is a wonderful way of engaging learners in these crucial issues.

There is also a one-hour documentary film, Voices from the Tundra,  available for purchase from c.ode@uva.nl. This is a highly personal and moving film based on Cecilia’s work in Siberia. Shown at the FIPLV/CASLT/OMLTA World Congress of Modern Languages in Niagara Falls, Canada, the film drew strong praise from viewers. It is highly recommended!

For further information and leaflets, as well as a link to the module, please see Cecilia’s website: http://www.endangeredlanguages.nl

Please share this widely as it needs to be seen.
