was encouraged to hear Professor Stefan Collini talk of the importance of ‘bilingualism’ with reference to science and arts on Radio 4’s recent talk – which took place on May 5th 2009 – about C.P Snow and the influence of his The Two Cultures (first published in 1959) in today’s society. Further information about both C.P Snow’s own views and the BBC radio show can be found in SLL, here.


blen
has always maintained the principle that pupils should be taught not only to be bilingual, but ‘biliterate’, able to communicate across different media as well as in more than one language. The gap between the arts and science is still present in today’s society but blen believes that with focus on a broadly based approach to education children can be more literate in both areas from an early age, thus reducing the distance between the two subjects.blen is planning a forum for a discussion on these issues in the forth-coming autumn term. Further information to come soon.
