Languages United aims to be socially responsible and help the local and global communities. We are conscious of environmental changes and the need for everyone to act. We are taking action as an organisation and encourage our students to do the same.

Our environment

 The school has taken a number of steps to reduce its impact on the environment. These include:

  • Reducing our use of paper with electronic forms, student handbook and student programme.
  • Reducing paper in the classroom by using online classrooms for giving students resources and assignments.
  • Moving towards a paperless office.
  • Separating our waste for recycling.
  • Using multiuse cups for drinks instead of disposable plastic cups.
  • Asking students to bring their own reusable water bottle to reduce plastic waste. Promoting the Refill app so that students can refill their bottles when they are out.

We are currently running a project to measure and reduce our carbon footprint. Details of the project will be posted here as it progresses.

Learning about social responsibility

In our lessons we encourage students to practise their English by discussing topics and issues, and looking at the world around them. We hope that students will start viewing themselves as global citizens - considering the environment and other people.

Continuing the themes of our lessons, students take part in projects that involve them in the local community.
