01 SES 10 C, The impact of professional development on teaching practices
Globalisation, migration, and information technological processes, which define every field of social coexistence, have a marked effect on language teaching and learning, which is most notable in changing learning environments, teacher and student roles. Language learning is a key competence that every European citizen should possess to be able to fulfil their educational and employment possibilities in the European knowledge society. (European Parliament, 2006)
Without being able to communicate in a foreign language, which is acknowledged as a key competence by the European Union, it is impossible to live in knowledge- and information societies. According to the EUROSTAT 2011 survey English is the most popular language among people aged 25-64 in the EU-28 countries. Two thirds of the responders stated they speak a foreign language, whereas in Hungary only 37% of the responders stated they know a foreign language. Therefore it is a key goal to support the language learning of the working (aged 25-64) population. (Eurostat, 2013)
