Work in London with The Elephant Minds Foundation

The Elephant Minds Foundation has launched its first programme of INTERNSHIPS for students! We are very grateful to Sophie and Airi who did a wonderful job. Opportunities like this help us support educational projects around the world and teach students the skills they need to embark on their future careers. Kind and generous TEAMWORK!

Students join our Team as part of their Programme in London, UK and/or Buenos Aires, Argentina. Career days and our Share your Experience luncheons are also organised with professionals of different fields who work in the city. For information on these internships please write to us at emf@elephantminds.co.uk

 

Language teachers be ready!

The European Day of Languages

Language teachers beware, you don’t want to miss it! It’s never too early to prepare your lessons on languages. Our students do love learning about the origins of languages, their cultural differences and all related celebrations. So, remember:

September 26 is the European Day of Languages (EDL). This has been celebrated annually since it was proclaimed on December 6, 2001 by the Council of Europe. It is a joint initiative with the European Union and seeks to promote plurilingualism to the continent’s 800 million inhabitants. It is organised with the assistance of the Council’s European Centre for Modern Languages throughout the 47 member states.

It does not matter how influential or dependent they are and hold one another in high esteem.

It was established that this would be facilitated in six official languages. These are: Chinese, Spanish, English, Arabic, Russian and French.
