Future opportunities

It is important to realise that many careers require the ability to speak and write one or more foreign languages. Only a few real specialists become translators or interpreters, but most organisations require and value people with language skills. Likewise Universities are now looking favourably at students who have taken an A Level in a Language when selecting undergraduates.
