Foreign language learning
A European priority
The European Commission has regarded language teaching as a priority for over 30 years. In 2002, the Barcelona European Council recommended that at least two foreign languages should be learnt from a very early age. So what is the situation today? Which languages are studied most? How are they taught? And how are those who teach them trained to do so? The indicators published by Key Data on Teaching Languages at School in Europe offer a broad overview of language teaching at school in Europe.
