Less widely taught languages

The term ‘less-widely taught’ is applied to all languages currently offered in universities in the UK and Ireland except for English, French, German and Spanish.

About the Less widely taught languages SIG

The SIG has been created to represent the interests of LWTLs practitioners for whom there is no formal body or language specific teaching associations that represent their complex needs.


  • To create a platform for communication, peer support and exchange of ideas.
  • To enable networking opportunities between the LWTLs practitioners.
  • To share best practice in order to enhance the teaching and learning of those languages.
  • To strengthen the case for teaching and learning LWTLs.
