Studying a foreign language can seem like a daunting process, but studying a European or other foreign language will be of great value when it comes to your employability.

Whichever language you choose to study you will be expected to learn the grammar, vocabulary and at A2 level take part in a debate or talk at length about a piece of literature.

Languages are vital if you think you would like to live and work abroad. 

Foreign languages are one of the 'facilitating subjects', highly regarded by many universities and helpful in all career areas. 

It is particularly useful in international aid, the Armed Forces, the security services, politics, law, business and working as an interpreter or translator.
