Professor Mike Baynham discusses the importance of translation services for migrants

21 August 2014 |

After a new report released by the think-tank Demos, Mike Baynham, Professor of TESOL, discusses the ‘simplistic’ suggestion that translation services should be cut in favour of increased funding for English teaching.

In an article published in The Conversation, Professor Baynham argues that translation services, although they can only ever be a ‘partial solution to communication problems’, should be used to compliment English language teaching provision.
