Past Focus Groups

FG Less Widely Spoken and Less Widely Taught Languages

English plays a key role in our everyday work: in many language centres. It constitutes the highest number of language courses and presents the highest demand among students, as well as being the most used language in international co-operation. However, other major European languages also play an important part in serving different needs. Likewise, language centres have a key role in the teaching of languages that are not widely taught at secondary level: Eastern European, Asian languages as well as heritage languages are becoming more popular and are being taught more frequently in many university language centres. This focus group will analyse the potential of teaching these languages and look into similarities and differences concerning their role and status in language centres.
