The Language Show is looking for speakers, teachers and performers to take part in over 80 seminars, language taster classes and cultural performances.
We are looking for seminars aimed at one of the following three targets;
- Language teachers, working at all levels, but especially those in secondary and primary. We’re after talks that offer teachers insights into resources, ideas, techniques and strategies to enthuse, engage, educate and motivate students.
- Language learners.
- Language professionals and linguists – those with language abilities looking to deploy them in their careers, leisure time or simply celebrate and enjoy them.
Seminar slots lasts 45 minutes, to include q&a, with 3 seminar rooms running concurrently. Each seats 200 theatre-style and is equipped with podium, laptop, microphones, loud speakers (or in the case of silent seminars, audio transmitter for listening on RF headphones), projector and screen. Up to 4 speakers can share the platform.

We run taster classes in over 20 languages – including the most popular languages but also the more exotic – aimed at beginners in those languages. Each class lasts a maximum of 30 minutes. Taster class rooms seat 50. Room set-up is a microphone, loudspeakers and an easel presentation board.

The Piazza is where we stage performances, demonstrations, presentations and experiences that help immerse, and offer a glimpse into, a foreign culture. These can range from music and dance to talks and discussions The Piazza seats 100, but with additional room for standing. Sessions are 45 minutes, from start to finish. Room set-up is podium, laptop, microphones, loud speakers, a projector and screen.
