Language Trends Survey

A message from the British Council to the Head of Languages in Independent Schools

Please do not forget to complete the Language Trends survey. This research provides an independent picture of the teaching of languages in English primary and secondary schools. Your responses will help us to build an accurate, up to date picture of the views of teaching professionals and to assess the impact on your school of those policy developments which affect languages education in schools.

The Language Trends survey is run annually by the British Council. The link below is for a specially adapted survey for independent schools, designed in conjunction with the Independent Schools Modern Language Association and the Association for Language Learning.

Completing the survey should take no more than 15 minutes of your time. To complete it, please go to:

You will need to include your Unique Reference Number, shown at the top of the email you should have received. This is to verify your response and to enable us to anonymise the data to ensure confidentiality.

The deadline for completing the survey is Friday 16th March 2018, but ideally we would like your response as soon as possible.  The report will be available in June 2018.

If you have any queries or difficulties accessing the survey please contact us at or on 07737 175 296.
