iTongue: Our Multilingual Future” is a new generation of paralinguistic digital tools for foreign language learning and it brings together art-items, game-methods and key competence training.

Through using approaches that combine scientific information about how the brain works with popular and familiar communication means, the project will create and disseminate easily accessible information and products of the most crucial findings about what inhibits and what promotes learning.

Launched in August 2013, the 'iTongue' initiative will facilitate language learning at a time of day convenient to the learner, e.g., during relaxation, as entertainment, travelling to and from work.

To increase awareness, provide access to new resources and enable active participation in the iTongue initiative among professionals involved already in language learning, ESTL will be holding a three-day workshop on Neurodidactic approaches to learning in London.

Scheduled to coincide with the Study Weekend in London, this workshop will cover:

  • Memorising with the 'Mexican Hat'
  • New developments in neuroscience and influence on how we learn
  • New approaches to learning with neurodidactics
  • Neurodidactics and music, art, computers
  • Science and technology to promote language learning with ease and fun
  • Decoding techniques for language learning
  • Creating audio and video learning clips based on neurodidactics
  • Effective solutions to language learning for adults
