I have just come across an interesting article by Dr Terry Lamb in the latest edition of The Linguist magazine. He reflects upon the personal, social, cultural, economic and political benefits of multilingualism in the UK. Although Terry’s article doesn’t seem to be available online yet, it is worth looking out for: www.iol.org.uk/linguistmagazine (edition 51/5 October/November 2012). Terry writes in his capacity as working group leader of Objective 1 of the Speak to the Future campaign ‘Every language valued as an asset’. You can find out more about the campaign from: www.speaktothefuture.org and on Twitter @speak2future
