Languages Today

Languages Today is the termly magazine of the Association for Language Learning, and is designed specifically for language teachers. It is free to members of the Association for Language Learning.

It contains news from the language teaching world; ideas to help with your teaching; reviews of teaching resources; and information about schemes and projects which may be of interest to you. We follow a day in the life of language teachers, trainers and people who use languages in their job, and we find out about how language skills are used in the workplace.

We welcome the opportunity to use up-to-date photographs of teachers working with their students, from schools, colleges, higher and adult education, to help ALL to raise the profile of language teachers and students learning languages. If you have suitable photographs that we could use to show language teaching and learning, please let us know.

Please send them to the Languages Today editorial team with a brief description and the name of your institution. Full permission of all subjects is required, in particular parents’ permission to use images of pupils; images need to be full colour, and high resolution (minimum 300 dpi or 2,480 pixels wide), jpegs if at all possible; and let us know if we need to credit the photographer.
