Abstract

Nations around the globe are reconsidering approaches to languages education, in cycles of remarkable similarity and focused on common as well as particular aspects of their contextual landscapes. This paper, one of a series of profile and comparison studies, draws on the experiences of the author working on projects in Australia, conducting comparative investigations of languages education policies in the UK and The Republic of Ireland, as part of broader research on languages education policy and practices in nations, countries and regions from around the globe, including Finland, Scotland, Ireland, England, Wales, Canada, the US, Germany, Bhutan, Nauru, New Zealand and Singapore, As Australia moves towards developing a National Plan and Strategy for Languages Education, and national projects investigate benefits of an early start and profiling case studies of successful practice, there are valuable insights and lessons to be learned from comparisons with others' approaches- both like and less like others- and from comparison of themes particular to current contextual circumstances, and prospectively.
