About the seminar
Can more material methods and strategies for improving comprehension of the Nordic Languages be created and promoted? And how can we revitalise national minority languages in the Nordic Region? Seminar workshops will focus on new initiatives for Nordic Language comprehension and about the work with national minority languages but future collaborations can revolve around other themes as well. In the contact seminar you will meet Nordic and Baltic colleagues and share and discuss experiences and challenges. You will get the opportunity to network and discuss future collaborations for a partnership within Nordplus Nordic Languages. The contact seminar will be in Scandinavian (Swedish, Danish and Norwegian), with English translation provided if requested.
