Chinese for Social Sciences


Towards a national
languages strategy:
education and skills, Proposals from the British Academy, the Arts and Humanities
Research Council, the Association of School and College Leaders,
the British Council and Universities UK
July 2020

Languages are strategically vital for the future of the UK, as we look to recover from the coronavirus
pandemic and strengthen our relationships across the world. But there is overwhelming evidence of an
inadequate, longstanding, and worsening supply of the language skills needed by the UK to meet future

in the UK
A call for action
From the four UK-wide National
Academies: The British Academy;
with the Academy of Medical
Sciences; the Royal Academy of
Engineering; and the Royal Society

The UK has the potential to become a linguistic powerhouse. If it did, it would be
more prosperous, productive, influential, innovative, knowledgeable, culturally richer,
more socially cohesive, and, quite literally, healthier. To achieve this, concerted and
coordinated action is needed, beginning with a systematic policy approach across all
sectors of education, but extending across social, economic, and international policy.
The four UK-wide National Academies recognise the need and benefits of action and
ask Government to:
1. Engage with the coalition of organisations who stand willing
to explore the steps needed;1The organisations involved are the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC), the Association of School and College Leaders (ASCL),
The British Academy, the British Council, and Universities UK. They plan to publish proposals in 2019.
2. Adopt and implement a national strategy for languages.2

British Academy Briefing: On Languages 2016

Language skills can no longer be regarded as an optional extra to a well-equipped society. Rather, they are a key indicator of how willing and prepared we are to operate in an increasingly multilingual and multicultural world. Yet evidence points to a long-standing deficit in UK education and research. This applies not solely to the UK – evidence from America and Australia point to a wider ‘Anglophone problem’.

The Academy has repeatedly shown that languages are essential for employability, trade, business and the economy, security, diplomacy and soft power, research, social understanding and cohesion. Furthermore, learning languages has been shown to have broader cognitive benefits. Watch the briefing as a video.

In the past 10 yeras,  the British Academy published three reports: Language matters (2009), Language matters more and more (2011), and Languages: The State of the Nation (2013), and launched The Champagne for Languages - ‘Speak to the Future’ in 2011 (see p56). CCPN Global supports it mainly for gaining comprehensive understanding of meanings behind language itself (see p29-30). CCPN Global and the Department of the Languages and Cultures of China and Inner Asia, SOAS, University of London, are developing a programme called ‘Chinese for Social Sciences’, a new branch of ‘Chinese for Specific Purposes’ (CSP), like ‘Chinese for Science and Technology’ or ‘Business Chinese’. JCCP’s column of Chinese for Social Sciences has two sections: reading including intermediate and advanced levels (see p185-194) and translation including English and Chinese bidirectional translation see (p195-198). ‘Chinese for Social Sciences Book Series’ will be published by Global Century Press. It includes the following themes: intermediate level reading, advanced level reading, analyses difficult sentences either in English-Chinese translation, or in Chinese-English translation, dictionaries of dialect / loan words in English, and phrase / glossaries in social sciences, etc.

British Academy Briefing: On Languages 2016

语言技能不再被视为装备精良的社会的可选技能。 相反,它们是我们在一个日益多语言和多元文化的世界中运作的意愿和准备的关键指标。 然而,有证据表明,英国教育和研究领域长期存在赤字。 这不仅仅适用于英国-来自美国和澳大利亚的证据表明存在着更广泛的“英语问题”。

该学院反复表明,语言对于就业能力,贸易,商业和经济,安全,外交和软实力,研究,社会理解和凝聚力至关重要。 此外,学习语言已被证明具有更广泛的认知优势。 观看简报作为视频。

近十余年来,英国学术院发表了三个报告:《语言很重要》(2009年)、《语言越来越重要》(2011年)和《语言:民族国家》(2013年),并于2011 年发起了题为“说话的未来”的语言运动 (见56页)。全球中国学术院支持这一运动主要体现在在对语言后面的深层含义和综合理解方面 (见49-50页)。全球中国学术院与伦敦大学亚非学院中国和内亚语言文化系研发的“社科汉语”项目是参与语言运动的一个结果。

“社科汉语”即特定用途汉语(CSP)的一个 分支,如“科技汉语”或“商务汉语”。《中国比较研究》设立的“社科汉语”栏目包括两部分:阅读(中级和高级,见185-194页),翻译(英汉和汉英双 向互译,见195-198页)。“社科汉语系列丛书”将由环球世纪出版社出版陆续出版,如:

  • 《社科汉语中级读物》
  • 《社科汉语高级读物》
  • 《社科汉语中的 英译汉难句分析》
  • 《社科汉语中的汉译英难句分析》
  • 《社科英语中的外来语 (英汉对照)》
  • 《社科汉语短语和词组(英汉对照)》
  • 《英译中华社科汉语词汇》
