Event description

Description

We are organising a one-day event, Rethinking the Languages Pipeline in the Age of Brexit’, funded by an Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) grant from ‘Languages Acts and World-making’, GW4 Consortium and Routes into Languages Cymru. The event will discuss the challenges facing languages from primary school to University and across the nations and regions of the UK. Increasingly, students are opting out of studying a language, often unaware of what they will lose (or never encounter) as a result of such a decision. Multilingualism is an integral part of our everyday lives and allows us to communicate, interact and learn from others beyond our linguistic community. The openness that this promortes is needed more so than ever in the uncertain era of Brexit. This event aims to bring together key language stakeholders involved in a student’s language journey to reflect and consider how we might reconfigure the language landscape in the UK to make language learning more appealing to young people.
