Rethinking Language Education in EU

Dina and Thomas have been contributing to the work of the EU Commission: Rethinking Language Education in EU and they would like to share this very useful collection of the links to some of the European Commission’s latest reports and relevant projects.

Some of the recommendations and conclusions from these publications have found their way into the draft proposal for a Council Recommendation on a comprehensive approach to language learning, which is planned for adoption on 16 May: https://ec.europa.eu/info/law/better-regulation/initiatives/ares-2018-1505009_en

Finally some useful videos. You will find more on the School Education Gateway YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/user/schoolgateway/videos
