Languages@Warwick migration

To all Languages@Warwick users.

After a complete platform review this year we have decided to change our hosting provider to Moodlerooms. This will bring numerous advantages including:

o a more modern look and feel

o better support for our key plug ins (BB collaborate, Kaltura, Equella)

o additional reporting and analytics for all users

o easier sub-theming for other users who have their own categories on the site

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.

Languages in Europe: Theory, policy, practice

The LETPP project -  Languages in Europe: Theory Policy Practice - has just launched its website:

Multilingualism has been described as an "asset for Europe and a shared commitment".  This may, however, be more a vision of what might be than a description of reality.  Reality is mediated not only by the vision (what people think), but by policy decisions (laws and regulations) and by performance (what we actually do).

A one year project - LETPP - has therefore been initiated in order to identify the conditions which allow good ideas on multilingualism to develop into coherent policy and practice, and also the obstacles to that happening.  By policy we mean European, national and regional strategies which promote or inhibit linguistic diversity in social and economic life, and also specific measures which may support that diversity, such as the Lifelong Learning Programme.
