CLiE is a joint committee of the Linguistics Association of Great Britain (LAGB) and the British Association for Applied Linguistics (BAAL).


We are experts in language and how it works.


Listening, speaking, reading and writing are important for all school subjects, and what we know can help all teachers in schools to teach children whose first or second language is English. Linguistics resources to support teachers


We build bridges between researchers and practitioners in the teaching of modern foreign languages, English, and linguistics. Member organisations and individuals


Our national competition, the UK Linguistics Olympiad, is just as popular with children who study maths as with children who study languages and English.  We have other projects  as well.


We make evidence-based comments on education policy, curriculum & assessments.
