‘Our languages’: exploring collaborations in Language Education
Lancaster University, 28 September 2019
About the conference:
This ‘think tank’-style conference is part of a project that explores cross-sector collaborations in language education in the UK. We invite primary and secondary teachers, academics, other language professionals and policy makers to discuss ideas to tackle the ‘language crisis’ in the UK, and explore potential cross-sector collaborations. The event will result in the publication of open-access position papers with recommendations for future developments in British language education. Download the programme.
