A directory of United Kingdom (UK) organizations and centers that provide services of interest to language teachers and researchers is presented. The organizations are associations and societies that are concerned with language, linguistics, language teaching and research, and the most important groups concerned with educational technology and reading skills in general. The organizations and centers are concerned specifically with the teaching of the five principal foreign languages taught in UK schools (French, German, Italian, Russian, and Spanish), as well as the most important groups concerned with the teaching of English as a second or foreign language). Also included are embassies, cultural institutes, and tourist offices in the UK that provide information and/or materials suitable for cultural and background studies related to the five main languages. Finally, the directory includes the most important European and international associations and centers abroad concerned with language teaching and research in general and, in particular, with the teaching of the five main languages. Excluded are national language teacher associations in individual countries abroad. The first of the two main sections of the directory, an alphabetical list of organizations, provides a description of each organization including address and telephone number, a list of publications and ordering information, and a contact persons. The second main section, a bibliography, includes other published directories and sources of reference. Also provided are an organization index, index of abbreviations and acronyms, index of publications, and a subject index. (SW)
