A summary of Languages Today magazine content in 2015/16.


Autumn 2015

LT21 CoverOur Autumn 2015 issue was all about ‘Art, design and fashion’:

Featuring ideas for craft and language activities; creating portraits using Spanish words; and fashion teaching tips from Routes into Languages and the Backstage project.

We also went beyond the language classroom to explore links with linguistics; on a cultural journey through the whole school with ‘Our World Week’ at Middleton Primary School in Nottingham; and took a trip through our multicultural and multilingual cities.



LT22 CoverSpring 2016

Our Spring 2016 issue was a ‘learner autonomy’ special issue: 

It’s all about how to encourage pupils to take control of their own learning, and become independent, autonomous learners.

We find out about the Language Futures approach – a very different model of language learning; hear about the hear about the ‘multilingual choice approach’ to language learning in South Australia; select our Best 10 ideas to support students with their language learning at home… and much more!



LT23 CoverSummer 2016

Our Summer 2016 issue is an ‘assessment / progress’ special issue: 

In this issue, we looked back – at the impact of the Routes into Languages programme over the last ten years; its achievements, activities, events and partnerships – and we celebrate the many ways in which it has motivated young people to enjoy their language learning. However, we also looked forward – at assessment strategies, progression and achievement in Key Stages 2 and 3, and innovative ways in which colleagues are measuring progress.
