It has also been shaped by the Commission Communication ‘Multilingualism: an asset for Europe and a shared commitment’ (2008) and by the Council Resolution on a European strategy for multilingualism (2008). The improvement of quality and efficiency of language learning is one of the key objectives of the Strategic Framework for Education and Training (‘ET 2020’).
