The Babel: Adventures in Translation exhibition is running at the Weston Library, Oxford until 2 June 2019. To complement the exhibition, we've produced a set of translation teaching resources based on some of the objects in the exhibition. You can use the resources alongside a visit to the exhibition or as stand-alone resources in the classroom.
We also have a Babel competition for schools currently running for years 5 – 13. Pupils can choose between 3 tasks, Magical Translation, Fabulous Translation and Futuristic Translation, for the chance to win up to £100. The competition closes on 15 May 2019.
