Diversity of languages is hailed
Fewer pupils are studying language GSCEs but more communities are
teaching their languages, say researchers.
More than 60 languages are being taught in communities, promoting
bilingualism, says Cilt, the national centre for languages.
Schools offer 35 languages in the curriculum or after-school clubs.
A study for Cilt argues bilingualism should be more highly valued in Britain.
