PROMOTION AND POLICY
Transforming languages in our country is a major endeavour. It requires the combined efforts of many partners. We must therefore make sure that we do everything possible to all work together in a coordinated way. We also need to make the case for languages and for a Languages Strategy – especially with national and local decision makers.
This will also involve working with key players in the UK and internationally, especially within Europe, to help develop clear policy orientations for languages in the 21st Century. We aim to help articulate a clearer shared vision and understanding of the role of languages in economic and civil life and as a force for social cohesion. In the UK an important vehicle for this continuing debate will be Speak to the Future
