Head of Department

Second languages are extremely useful. It is well known that young people who have studied a language are among the most employable.

Not only for their language knowledge but also for the communication skills and cultural knowledge they have acquired. Linguists also develop many transferable skills such as logic, reasoning and creative thinking.

Why take a language?

  • It’s a multilingual world - not everyone speaks English. 75% of the world does not speak English at all.
  • A little language can make a lot of difference. More jobs than you can imagine need language skills. A language will give you the edge in the job market. In fact, many businesses are choosing to employ graduates from other European countries over British graduates due to their enhanced language skills.
  • Languages improve the quality of your life and your understanding of how other people live and think.
  • You can travel more and meet new people. Travelling and meeting people from other countries is made easier by showing your understanding of a second European language
