Professor Nigel Vincent FBA has just completed his term as the British Academy’s Vice-President for Research and Higher Education Policy. A major aspect of his four years of office has been the development of a programme targeting deficits in both Languages and Quantitative Skills in UK education and research. On 24 June 2014, there was a British Academy/Guardian Roundtable on ‘Is English Still Enough for Anglophone Countries? An International Debate on Language Education and Policy’. The following article is an edited
version of remarks made by Professor Vincent on that occasion, providing an overview of both the issues and the Academy’s initiatives.
