Description

The event started with an outline of proposals in support of the ambitious and challenging 1 + 2 language policy, building on the successful outcomes of last year's symposium. Delegates were then invited to join a discussion aimed at feeding into a long-term and sustainable language promotion strategy through a series of national cross-sector initiatives between schools and universities.The event also aimed to establish a Scotland-wide research network related to languages, language pedagogy and language policy across the sectors generally, and the 1+2 language policy specifically.
