Launched today the 1000 words campaign is based on the principle that everyone can learn the basics of a foreign language. Funded jointly by the British Academy and the university-based programme Routes into Languages, the campaign supports the idea that a basic understanding of a different language will open up a world of exciting opportunities. By learning 1000 words in a foreign language people will be able to interact with and understand people from different countries, cultures and backgrounds.
