Scott McLeod has uploaded several versions of Karl Fisch’s presentation “Did you know?”. I’m currently using a PC that’s not got sound, I’m not sure what extra you’d get with sound, but the Powerpoint slides have the main information on (and, they’ve done it with limited text on each slide :)).
It’s US-centric, (though England gets an honorary mention) – but makes the point about what’s facing our current and future students in terms of information & competition from places like China well.

It’s pretty obvious that the UK education system is going to have to look more and more at language learning (not just French) – and how to information use, rather than learning facts.
