This article is an edited report on what I have learned about language teaching methods through researching the subject for the Interdisciplinary Project part of the Scottish Baccalaureate in Languages. I offer my views on why the UK seems to be behind in language learning, why the focus of our curriculum seems inappropriate and present an analysis of my survey results. I also propose some common language learning principles that we could use in everyday teaching.
