50. The Mathspeak project

We talk to Tony Grice about the Mathspeak project. 

The Mathspeak project is a partnership between European educational practitioners and the creators of educational materials. Funded by the European Commission, the objective of the Mathspeak project is to produce a language learning resource for secondary school students. The learning materials will enable students to perform mathematics in a foreign language at the same level they do in their native language.
