Languages for Career Development
Modern Foreign Languages (MFL) are becoming increasingly important in the workplace. Employers are seeking workers who can speak and understand another language. As companies are becoming increasingly multinational, and it is becoming increasingly commonplace for British companies to trade abroad, especially as we are a part of the EU and have recently strengthened our trade links with China, being able to communicate with another country is priceless. For your further information, the countries that are currently the top trading partners with the UK are as follows: The top five EU trading partners with the UK in October 2014 were; Germany, the Netherlands, France, Ireland and Belgium. The top five non-EU trading partners with the UK in October 2014 were; the US, Switzerland, China, Norway and Canada. Consequently, being able to comprehend one of those languages could make a vital contribution to a British company. Furthermore, City firms and organisations have explicitly stated that they are seeking graduates that speak or write Spanish, Chinese, Arabic or Russian.
