Global Britain and the question of communication

Tuesday 11 May 2021

Professor Charles Burdett, director of the Institute of Modern Languages Research at the School of Advanced Study, University of London, has published an opinion piece in the Languages, Society & Policy journal. Entitled ‘Global Britain and the question of communication’, it looks at the teaching of modern foreign languages, the implications of the proposed GCSE reforms, and argues that the formal consideration of culture needs to contribute towards how the qualification is taught and assessed.
