The European Education and Culture Executive Agency, Eurydice, published the fifth edition of the report Key data on teaching languages at school in Europe earlier this year.
The report considers differences between European countries in teaching and learning foreign languages, regional and minority languages and students' home languages. The report covers 39 education and training systems in the 37 member countries of the Eurydice Network. 51 indicators are presented, organised in five different chapters. More specifically, topics covered include:
• the provision of (foreign) languages in the curriculum;
• the number and range of languages studied by students;
• the instruction time dedicated to foreign language teaching;
• the expected levels of attainment for the first and second foreign languages;
• language support for newly arrived migrant students and home-language teaching;
• foreign language teachers’ profiles and qualifications;
• the transnational mobility of foreign language teachers.
