Global Trends in Language Learning in the 21st Century

by Sarah Elaine Eaton

Today’s language classroom is vastly different from that of the mid- to late 20th century. “Global Trends in Language Learning in the the Twenty-First Century” (June 2010) is a meta-analysis of recent research which provided the means to identify current and emerging trends in the field.

The report demonstrates language education in the twenty-first century is no longer on grammar, memorization and learning from rote, but rather using language and cultural knowledge as a means to communicate and connect to others around the globe. Geographical and physical boundaries are being transcended by technology as students learn to reach out to the world around them, using their language and cultural skills to facilitate the connections they are eager to make.
