All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO)

The All Ireland Linguistics Olympiad (AILO) challenges Second Level students to develop their own strategies to solve complex problems in unfamiliar languages. AILO aims to: help students to hone their problem-solving skills; increase students’ confidence in tackling complex problems; and inspire students to consider the fascinating range of careers at the intersection of computing, language and linguistics. AILO won the European Language Label 2020. The Olympiad links closely with the learning outcomes of many subjects across the Irish school curriculum.
