Why do we need to learn a language?

  • 75% of the world’s population do not speak English.
  • Over 60% of British trade is with non English speaking countries.
  • Businesses pay linguists between 5-20% more than their monolingual counterparts.
  • Universities are increasingly asking for proof of modern language study.


“Language learning at its best can be one of the most enjoyable and rewarding experiences that life can offer.”
Sir Trevor McDonald.
