The ‘Perspectives Series’ sets out the British Council’s approach to a range of issues around the English language in learning systems around the world. The papers build on the experience of British Council experts from across the organisation. Contributions come from the English Language Research Group (ELRG) which includes representatives from the Assessment Research Group, English Teaching and Learning as well as English in Education Systems (EES).
We set out how British Council’s work in testing and assessment has operationalised the cultural relations. We support this with evidence from the organisation’s activities in the area in recent decades. Barry O'Sullivan, Mina Patel and Gary Mundy
