Celtic languages in European Higher Education: CRAMLAP - Celtic, Regional and Minority Languages Abroad Project

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

    Abstract

    The Celtic, Regional and Minority Languages Abroad
    Project (CRAMLAP) is funded by the European Commission
    to research the provision and pedagogy of regional
    and minority languages outside their national borders in
    Europe. The teaching of Celtic languages across Europe
    was the focus in year one (2003-2004). This article summarizes
    the qualitative data received in response to
    questionnaires sent to institutions across Europe offering
    Celtic Studies. Responses indicated that Celtic Studies
    are quite widely available across Europe. The languages
    are taught in comparative linguistics, linguistics and English
    departments, with few dedicated Celtic departments
    or sections outside the Celtic countries. Irish is supported
    abroad by Irish government grant aid which will
    become more widely available in the immediate future.
    Many of the teachers have considerable experience, but
    limited pedagogic training. The lack of suitable teaching
    resources is the most commonly expressed concern.
