Languages Today

Languages Today is our member magazine, 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.

The autumn 2019 issue explores ambition within curriculum planning in the context of the new Ofsted Inspection Framework, with its emphasis on progression and rich learning experiences for all.  The contribution of languages to the whole curriculum comes through as a strong thread from our writers, as does the need for language teachers to remain creative and share their ideas.
