Key Data on Teaching Languages at School in Europe – 2017 Edition

Date of publication: 18 May 2017

The 2017 Edition of Key Data on Teaching Languages at School in Europe depicts the main education policies regarding teaching and learning of languages in 42 European education systems. It answers questions about what foreign languages are learnt, how long students spend studying foreign languages, the level of foreign language proficiency students are expected to reach by the end of compulsory education and what kind of language support is provided to newly arrived migrant students as well as many other topics. The indicators are organised into five different chapters: Context, Organisation, Participation, Teachers and Teaching Processes. A variety of sources were used to build the indicators, and these include the Eurydice Network, Eurostat, and the OECD’s PISA and TALIS international surveys.

Focus on: What future for student mobility?

Date of publication: 14 February 2017

"I look forward to a United States of Europe, in which the barriers between the nations will be greatly minimised and unrestricted travel will be possible." - Winston Churchill in 1942

Student mobility is undoubtedly of huge value to European society. But while it brings benefits to individuals, to countries and to Europe itself, support measures for student mobility are not uniform across the EU. We ask: what are the factors that motivate young people to study abroad, what different possibilities does EU citizenship provide them with, and is there a hopeful future for transnational study in today's current political climate?
