Modern Foreign Languages are important in many jobs and areas of life today. 

Increasing communication and trade between countries means that there are more and more opportunities for linguist to use their skills.
 

Why Modern Foreign Languages?

  • Increased opportunities for university - Universities today value knowledge of more than one language very highly. Having a second or even a third language could give you the edge over other candidates

  • Increased Career Opportunities - As well as occupations such as interpreting, translating and language teaching, linguists can pursue careers in business services, government, contact centres, engineering, event management, financial services, marketing, media, public services, travel and tourism, or voluntary and charitable work
