The European Union has made it a priority to improve language learning across Europe. The aim is for all citizens of Europe to be able to communicate in at least three European languages! With the world becoming a global village, speaking only one language will definitely shut you out. The business world is in need of people who are multi-lingual because of the global economy. You will be an asset to any business with more than one language at your disposal. The ability to speak French in addition to having good communication skills in English can be the difference between make or break for Britain's emerging business leaders. Furthermore, GCSE languages are now becoming an entrance requirement for most top universities.
Studying a foreign language...
- Expands one's view of the world
- Creates an understanding of human nature
- Teaches and encourages respect for other people
- Contributes to cultural awareness
