(p.3) 1 Introduction
French Studies in and for the Twenty-first Century

This introductory chapter briefly sets out the book's purpose, which is to paint a picture of French Studies in the UK. It then cites the main challenge faced by modern language education, namely the lack of financial support from the government. It argues that the modern languages community must take a lead in advocacy, explaining and demonstrating why and how languages are vital to every higher education experience, be it in the UK or elsewhere in the world. In this work, French Studies has a particularly important leadership role to play, since French remains the most widely studied and researched language in the UK.

Keywords:   French Studies, UK, modern language education, higher education, languages, French
