The British Academy welcomes the All-Party Parliamentary Group on Modern Languages’ proposal for a National Languages Recovery Programme.

The All-Party Parliamentary Group on Modern Languages National Recovery Programme for Languages makes an economic, international relations and security case for a renewed focus on language learning in Britain. 

Responding to the APPG’s recommendation, Professor Neil Kenny, Lead Fellow for Languages at the British Academy said:

"The British Academy welcomes the proposal for a National Languages Recovery Programme. We share the APPG’s assessment that the UK faces a languages crisis, damaging to both our economy and our social fabric. That is why the British Academy last week published a joint statement with the three other UK-wide national academies of science, medicine, and engineering which also calls for a national languages strategy. The National Languages Recovery Programme provides a cogent set of signposts which this strategy could follow to lead the UK out of this crisis."
