The 2018/9 of the ADAPT All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO) is now open! Secondary schools can register here and view the new brochure at https://goo.gl/5dhpjT. AILO is the problem solvers’ challenge. The national contest sees secondary school students develop their own strategies for solving complex problems in unfamiliar languages from around the globe. As well as introducing students to little-known languages, AILO learning outcomes have clear links with the Maths and Coding curricula, key skills and the PISA problem-solving competencies https://goo.gl/5dhpjT.
