The new Routes into Languages website is currently in development and will be launching in the new year!


Promoting the take-up of languages and student mobility

The Ambassadors

This original and motivating DVD was produced collaboratively by the partner institutions which make up the Routes into Languages Yorkshire and The Humber consortium. This unique DVD tackles the myths surrounding language learning and delves into the world of Language Student Ambassadors as they explain why languages are important for them and their future careers.

The DVD consists of a range of interviews with Language Student Ambassadors as they travel from one university in Yorkshire to another in vintage minis. The interviews are very natural and all the students give their honest opinions about how languages have and will help shape their future.

‘The Ambassadors’ is aimed at 11-18 year olds and will hopefully become an invaluable resource in your school. It can be used in assemblies, at open evenings, in language lessons to help raise the profile of language learning and even on loop in the foyer of school reception areas. It is 20 minutes long but has been broken down into chapters for ease of use.

All schools in the Yorkshire and The Humber will soon be receiving a copy, free of charge!
