Future of languages: petition

Posted by Tom Roper on January 14, 2008

Following the closure of their MA in Translation and Interpreting, members of the languages department at the University of Bradford have started a petition calling for the government to address the current crisis in language learning in the UK, and make a foreign language compulsory again at GCSE level. Although it is too late for
Bradford, it might help other language departments across the country.
Please find the petition at the following link:
