┬áSadly after 15 years we are no longer able to maintain this website. We remain committed to the value of languages and to the issues on which we have been working since 2008 – multilingualism, language policy and practice and the misuse of language ( hate speech) for example If you wish to get in touch about these or other language related matters you can still contact us at


A message from The Languages Company.

After 14 years we have regretfully decided to cut back our activities.

The website will remain live, but untended, until the end of 2022 should you wish to download some of the historic and we think useful documents it contains.

As well as the outcomes of projects such as LUCIDE and Positive Messengers there may be some interest in the reviews of the past, and our thinking on Pedagogy, in particular in the light of current developments.

We would have wished to withdraw on a high note, with many of the challenges of the last decades resolved. Sadly this is not the case.

It will, however, be for a new generation to take up the struggle for greater language capability and the dream of languages for all in a world of mutual respect.
