This engaging and motivating DVD was produced by the lead institution of the Yorkshire and Humber consortium for Routes into Languages, The University of Hull, in collaboration with the Regional Language Network Yorkshire & Humber (RLNYH). It aims to raise awareness of the importance of studying a language in today’s competitive environment, as many employers argue that languages are key to successful business activities in today’s global economy.
The DVD consists of a range of interviews with business leaders and employees in the Yorkshire & The Humber region such as the West Yorkshire Fire and Rescue Service, Camira Fabrics and Howden-based translation company, Language is Everything. It also includes interviews with young people from GCSE to A Level, as well as overseas and native University students. They all give their honest opinions about how languages have helped them, or will help their future careers and they enthuse with positive messages throughout.
We believe this is an invaluable resource for schools, especially language departments, and we hope that it will be used in lessons, as well as during parents’ and options evenings and even on loop in the foyer of school reception areas.
