Addressing the cultural chasm in language learning
Hosted by Darren Lester
Darren Lester hosts a broad discussion around bridging the cultural gap in language learning. Darren asks why is there a cultural capital chasm and why does it exist? What are the implications of this on learners now and in the future? How can languages become more accessible and inclusive for learners (regardless of their background, ability or reason for studying) What are the practical steps schools, awarding bodies and others can take to bridge the gap?
