21 Feb 2013

In an article for the Guardian, Professor Nigel Vincent has highlighted the state of foreign language learning in the UK and its effect on UK market competitiveness. Professor Vincent draws on the new British Academy new report - Languages: State of the Nation - which analyses the worrying state of the current demand and supply of language skills in England, Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. The report is the latest in a series of reports and position papers the Academy have dedicated in recent years to the declining status of languages in our schools and universities.
