Half a million fewer adults are learning a foreign language than a decade ago, according to a survey by the National Institute of Adult Continuing Education (Niace) reported in the Guardian today.

Here’s the Guardian story: http://education.guardian.co.uk/egweekly/story/0,,2084621,00.html

And here’s the NIACE news item announcing the survey: http://www.niace.org.uk/news/current.htm#Language

Paper copies are available from NIACE at £12.95 plus postage and packing.
