Britain may lag behind much of the world when it comes to speaking foreign languages, but our desire to learn, however belated, is strong. Alongside the traditional evening classes there’s a boom in innovative apps and opportunities to learn online. These intimate celebratory films explore the joys – and far-reaching benefits – of learning a language.
