The Finnish Network for Language Education Policies – Kieliverkosto

The Network for Language Education Policies, Kieliverkosto, is an open forum for all who are interested in languages and language education. The network encourages discussion about language learning and teaching, the role of languages in society, language assessment, and languages in working life. Everyone is welcome to take part in this discussion as languages are an integral part of our everyday lives.

The network brings together actors in the field of language education policy, organises events, promotes research and education in the field, and influences decision-making about language education in Finland. Since language education policy is not merely a national issue, the network also seeks international contacts and experiences.

The Network is funded by the Ministry of Education and Culture, and it is coordinated by the Centre for Applied Language Studies, University of Jyväskylä.
