On Monday, senior school pupils welcomed Danila Datti, a representative from the School of Language and Global Studies at UCLAN. She delivered an informative assembly entitled, Unlocking Your World and Your Career. The presentation encouraged all pupils to consider how continued study of a Modern Foreign Language can make a tangible difference to career prospects and earning potential. Danila provided key facts which were very thought-provoking. Did you know that 75% of the world’s population speaks no English at all? During the assembly, we discussed how there is an increased demand for languages from employers, how companies are losing trade because of language and cultural barriers, and considered the wide variety of careers where speaking a foreign language can make a real difference.
Thank you to Danila for her time and the wealth of information she shared with our pupils. We hope that they are now inspired to see new opportunities for themselves in the future.
