SPEAKGLOBAL:   The SPEAKGLOBAL programme is designed to raise awareness of multilingualism in the world, and cognitive benefits of speaking several languages.   The programme is free to use for any UK Modern Languages teacher. It is targeted at Key Stages 3 and 4 and consists of 2 sessions of about 40-45 minutes each, suitable for all abilities and students studying different languages.  
Developed through the Routes into Languages North East annual Beat the Rat Race careers event, the resource features profiles of four local linguists, each using their languages in a variety of different sectors. The resource provides a good starting point for teachers wishing to showcase careers using languages and for pupils and students interested in finding out more about potential employment options.
