Between 8 and 15 June 2016, Santander Universities are sponsoring free intensive language courses for students at total beginner level in four languages: French, Spanish, German and Mandarin. Places are limited, so act quickly to find out more and book your place.
On 20 November the British Council launched a report entitled ‘Languages for the Future: Which Languages the UK Needs and Why’, identifying Spanish, Arabic, French, Mandarin Chinese, German, Portuguese, Italian, Russian, Turkish and Japanese as the languages most vital to the UK over the next 20 years. The report is of interest for all concerned with planning the future of languages and can be downloaded from the British Council website.
If you’re considering learning a new language this semester, or brushing up on your existing language skills, this week is your last chance to book a place on the University’s Lifelong Learning language courses for Semester 1!
