Are you a young adult learning English?

What are the English language needs and priorities of young adults in Europe? What kinds of English do 18-24 year olds want to speak, and why? Has the development of new technologies and online communication affected the ways in which young adults use English, and if so, how? Has the emergence of English as an international Lingua Franca affected people’s sense of their own identity? And what might this mean for English language teaching and learning?

Northumbria University and King’s College London (both UK), with the British Council, are surveying young adult English language learners views about the English they need and want to speak and use, and the implications of this for English language teaching.

The survey for young adult learners is now available online at:

Participation in this survey is open to all English language learners in Europe aged between 18-24, and is voluntary. Answers are confidential – no individual’s answers can be identified – and the survey will take about 20 minutes to complete.
