Key Data on Teaching Languages at Schools in Europe

2005, 110 p. ISBN 92-894-8681-3.

This first edition of a special Key Data report on language teaching uses 37 indicators to portray the situation in 30 countries in the Eurydice Network.
How many pupils speak one language at home and another at school? How is language teaching organised (in terms of when compulsory provision begins and ends, which languages are taught, how many have to be learnt for what amount of time and what are the official teacher/pupil ratio requirements)? What are the language learning participation rates? How many languages are learnt on average? What are the qualifications of those who teach them? These are just some of the questions examined in the present publication.
In addition to information from Eurydice sources, the report is supplemented by data from Eurostat (New Cronos) as well as empirical data gathered in the PISA 2000 (Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development) and PIRLS 2001 (International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement) international surveys.

What is the level of computerisation in primary and secondary schools in Europe? How frequently are computers and the Internet used by pupils at or out of school? For what types of activity? How is information and communication technology (ICT) incorporated into the curriculum? What measures have been introduced to train teachers in the educational use of the technology?
Three years after the publication of Basic Indicators on the Incorporation of ICT into European Education Systems, this latest report uses 35 indicators to appraise the current situation in the countries covered by the Eurydice Network. In order to supplement the data from Eurydice sources on the teaching of ICT and teacher training in the field, this new edition includes empirical data from the PISA 2000 and PIRLS 2001 international surveys carried out under the auspices of the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) and the International Association for the Evaluation of Educational Achievement (IEA) respectively.
