Networking lunch followed by talk from Lady Brigitte Peach MCIL, who has run her own language agency for the last nine years and has been a language teacher since 1992.
Brigitte’s talk was entitled “The Challenges of Teaching Foreign Languages’; she talked about teaching languages in schools, the English Baccalaureate, becoming a language teacher, the decline in modern foreign language examination entries and the fact that we need far more of our young people to learn languages in order to boost their own job prospects and to ensure that the UK stays competitive on the world stage.
