Language Policy

The Language Observatory considers itself as a platform for language learners, teachers, the civil society, social and public services and policy makers to discuss multilingualism policies, best practice and exchange ideas. has collected examples of best practice in multilingualism and worked out a series of policy recommendations for the implementation of a successful European multilingualism policy. 

The best practice examples in this section are the concrete expression of multilingual experiences and supposed to be an inspiration to policy makers to create favourable conditions for multilingualism projects and initiatives.

Another objective of the Language Observatory is to provide policy makers with sound information on multilingualism, its importance for a diverse and united Europe as well as ways to promote and encourage multilingualism at grass-roots level.
