So I’ve recently said my piece for my student newspaper on why languages are still important and on people seeing our degrees as a bit of a waste of time… Hoping it does not sound too ranty because that is not my point.
This negative perception of languages is becoming more and more of an issue in the UK, and it is such a shame. On the bright side, it seems that we are finally starting to recognise our faults and promoting languages once again.
Take a look!
Also – The Guardian have started a great section on their website called The Case for language learning – I’m a big fan!
