The original POOLS project lasted from 2005 to 2007. But many of its products and outputs remain current. This video was made in 2006 by POOLS partner Sabhal Mòr Ostaig as part of its contribution of 20 English and 20 Gaelic videos.

This collection of „Island Voices“ videos went on to win a 2007 European Award for Languages (The Language Label).

And yet, just last week, following postings by the British Council Teaching English and Learn English Facebook pages, this video and related clips registered 1500 hits from 95 countries on the Island Voices Videos YouTube channel.

Not bad for a 7-year old clip!

There’s a challenge for the new languages in the POOLS 3 partnership. We look forward to making good quality productions. We also want lasting impact!

    Interesting write up.
    You generally prepare the most useful resources and as usual SUSTAINING POOLS | PELICAN MULTILINGUAL MAGAZINE is simply no exception!
