Welcome to the Sir Robert Taylor Society, a network of teachers of Modern Foreign Languages in secondary schools, academics in the Medieval and Modern Languages Faculty at the University of Oxford, and others who have an interest in Modern Languages. The conference is named after the founder of the Modern Languages Library at Oxford (the ‘Taylor Institution’), Sir Robert Taylor.

Our annual conference takes place in September at the University of Oxford, and provides a unique forum for interaction and exchange between the University and teachers.

Regrettably, the 2020 conference has been cancelled as a result of the ongoing Covid-19 situation. We hope to return in September 2021, and to make some content available online in the meantime. Keep an eye on our ‘current conference’ page for details later in the year.

For information about our wider work with schools, please see the Medieval and Modern Languages Faculty website or follow us on Twitter @OxMML_Schools and @SirRobTaylorSoc.
