Languages and your future Want to know more about how langages can help your career prospects? Routes into Languages has produced Languages and your future, a resource aimed at secondary school pupils to encourage them to learn languages by telling them about the employability benefits of knowing a foreign language. It combines languages, skills and professions to show pupils how they are all linked and to encourage them to think about the skills you gain by learning a language.
This is Routes into Languages third webinar exploring how a knowledge of languages is useful in business. Watch our panelists, Bernardette Holmes, Diane Appleton, Lizzie Fane and Raquel Fernandez-Sanchez talk about languages, employability and careers.
Improve your German while learning about life and culture in Germany and Austria. This album of audio podcasts are devised as a revision of some post-beginners structures and vocabulary as well as an introduction to different aspects of everyday life in German speaking countries.

We were very fortunate to be able to watch the films at the Cambridge Arts Picturehouse, having piloted the materials with year 9 pupils from local Cambridgeshire schools. Let us know what you think...   We continue to develop more materials - so far, we have the following:
Using the ATLAS website, which provides links to a range of language taster classes and information on languages and employment, students complete two quizzes, encouraging interest in a culture or language not normally taught in school.
