I recently asked a question about the European Day of Languages because one of its goals is to motivate people to learn foreign languages.

Language policy that is relevant to language learning or language teaching was probably not considered as a topic for this site. However, I would like to make a plea for adding this topic to the site's scope, because I think that the initial idea (just techniques for SLA) should not work as a straightjacket that prevents the site from growing.

If accepted, the site's description (e.g. at Area 51) would need to be adapted. (In fact, there is also an older question that requested a change that has not been implemented yet.)

    I think the question is on-topic: as far as I can tell, the question definitely does relate to second-language acquisition. Also, if it was off-topic, where could it be migrated to? LL.SE seems to be the best fit of the sites we have now.

    I agree with Hatchet. I think your question is perfectly on-topic.

  • @Hatchet - Is migratability a factor in determining inclusion here? This seems to be a point of difference between SEs and between individual mods: The question's-eye-view asks "Where can this high quality question find a good home?" while the site's-eye-view asks "Can I handle this high quality question?".

  • @WAF the reason I included the comment about migrating is because sites' scopes have been modified with the addition of new sites, for example SO & SU, or SO & SF, or Unix & AU, or SU & any of the smaller software-specific sites like Blender. There are no other sites where this question would be more on-topic than here.
