Why are languages useful for your future?

In what ways could languages improve your employability or allow you to meet new people?

What are the different ways to carry on with a language at university?

This masterclass will give you a chance to try your hand at learning something new. It starts with a talk on the advantages of studying modern languages at degree level, followed by the opportunity to sample two different languages.

Who can attend this masterclass?

This event is open to Year 7 to 11 students, no previous language experience required. Participants may be studying a modern language now, like French, German or Spanish, but Arabic, Chinese, Japanese, Italian, Portuguese or Russian are languages in demand and can be studied from scratch at university level. Explore the rest of our masterclasses for more fun learning opportunities.
