Languages - Speaking in tongues

23rd January 2009 at 00:00

An Edinburgh primary is the first in Scotland to join a network of European schools where a minority language is used next to the national language.

Carrick Knowe Primary will be representing English and Scots in the Mercator Network of Bilingual Schools and will be linking up with other bilingual schools around Europe.
