• Case Study: Hindi language celebrations

    The number of people in New Zealand who can speak Hindi nearly tripled between 2001 and 2013. Hindi is now the fourth most spoken language in New Zealand.

  • Who to involve?

    People are at the heart of ensuring that a language survives and thrives and this is particularly the case when organising a language celebration.

  • When is the right time?

    Selecting the right time to celebrate your language is particularly important for larger language celebrations.

  • Case study: Vagahau Niue Language Week

    Case Study from the New Zealand Niue Community.

  • What’s next?

    What you do after your language celebration is just as important as the planning and running of the event itself. This is a chance to congratulate everyone who helped make the celebration happen, to evaluate what went well, and to decide what you’ll do in the future.

  • Celebration Checklist

    You may wish to host specific events during your language celebration. This checklist includes things that you might want to think about, leading up to, on the day and following the event. Not all of these will be relevant to your event, but they might be useful for you to consider.
