Background

The project EURO LANGUAGES NET PLUS (ELN PLUS) has been initiated by a large group of institutions in Europe to promote linguistic diversity and to offer a network focusing on dissemination of less widely-used languages. ELN PLUS concentrates on the main European Union priorities for languages - networking, publicity and information.
The ELN Plus - European Languages Net Plus project is based on the successful and valuable achievements of the European Languages Net project / 2001- 2004 /. The EURO LANGUAGES NET PLUS project will involve a wide range and an almost unlimited number of the general public of all age groups who are interested in learning less widely-used European languages and who live in participating countries in Europe as well as in other parts of the world and who have access to the Internet.

Realisation

The general public who are interested in languages acquisition will use the project products for the accessing of information about learning possibilities as well as for multicultural education. Language learners will be made aware of the advantages of learning another language (especially the less widely-used languages). The project intent to increase employability and hence mobility around Europe; we will work on the social aspects of learning a new language - meeting new people from different countries, of different nations, of varying abilities etc. Ultimately this will mean a more tolerant and culturally integrated society.
National and international forums will be organised to promote the less widely-used languages and to disseminate LINGUA projects and products. The general public representatives, as well as learners from various educational institutions, will be encouraged to be involved in the forums.
