About Intercultural Language Service
Intercultural Language Service seeks to promote social inclusion for newer community members through community-based Language and (inter)cultural training, and to foster social cohesion in the communities and areas of Dublin City where New-Irish reside through intercultural encounters, activities and events. We see diversity as a golden opportunity for personal and inter-community development, not a challenge. We see integration as a two-way conversation between equals.
