New campaign calls for urgent action on languages
A new campaign, branded Speak to the Future, has been launched with the support of over 30
organisations to address the UK’s flagging achievement in language learning. The campaign calls
for urgent action on policy to safeguard and revitalise language learning across all phases of
education in order to boost educational and career opportunities for young people and our ability to
compete in the global economy. Campaigners have united to send a powerful public message
highlighting the vital national importance of foreign language capacity in today’s global world.
