The Many Benefits of Studying a Language

1

On Friday 10th February - Year 8 and 9 pupils had talks by ambassadors from The University of Kent on why they should study a language. The rationale behind the presentation was to give pupils an insight into possible career options that an additional language might open to them.


The ambassadors discussed the challenges that learning new languages can pose and how to overcome them. They shared with pupils the benefits that linguists can look towards in the future and spoke of their own experiences of travel and meeting new people.
