The work of the ECML represents a collective effort and determination to enhance the quality in language education at challenging times. The publications illustrate the dedication and active involvement of all those who participated in a series of international projects and training and consultancy activities. The promotion of the programme outputs and their adaptation to different learning environments is supported through National Contact Points in each of the member states of the Centre. Read more

The status of language educators

How respected do you feel in the staff-room? Do parents consider the job you do a worthwhile one? How often do decision-makers ask you concerning your views about language education? Is language education regarded as a profession or a kind of generous service? We have learnt from the responses of dozens of our fellow professionals to the questions above that there is something fundamentally wrong with the prestige of language education and its practitioners. A small but enthusiastic group has heeded the call, hence this book. Whether you just want to reflect on the exhibits of the Teacher of the Week portrait gallery, or are keen to indulge in the ideal conditions of the metaphorical Language Teachers' Wonderland, welcome! Who knows, sooner than later, you may be the next to take matters into your own hands, to plan and implement one or more of the status raising actions recommended by us! Let it be! Our group can hardly become more enthusiastic, but it has got to grow bigger and bigger to achieve our common aims, higher professional status!
