The British Academy and Guardian held the UK's second national Language Festival from October to November 2014.
The Festival aimed to raise the profile of language learning among learners of all ages and celebrate the diverse cultural richness of the UK through a range of activities including public debates, online Q&As, downloadable schools resource packs and much more.
