Professor Pam Moores Lends Support To New Language Learning Campaign

Speak to the future is a new campaign which is highlighting the importance of languages, language learning and professional language activities for the UK. Targeting the public, media and government, its initiatives are raising awareness of the issue – and aim to bring about a step-change in attitude and policy in favour of languages.

The campaign is backed by leading professional and business organisations who are convinced of the importance of language learning for the future of our society, our citizens and our economy.

Professor Pam Moores OBE, Executive Dean of the School of Languages and Social Sciences at Aston and former Chair of the University Council for Modern Languages (UCML) writes about the campaign and about the many opportunities language study offers in the April/May edition of The Linguist (pages 8-9).
