Lost In Translation

Event Fallback Image

In January of last year, a report published by the Higher Education Policy Institute (HEPI) identifies a languages crisis in the current UK workforce. An EU wide survey cited in the report found that only 32% of young people in the UK say they are able to read or write in more than one language, compared with 79% of their peers in France and more than 90% in Germany.

Lost in Translation is an engaging and informative workshop which aims to reignite students’ enthusiasm and encourage them to learn a foreign language. They will gain intercultural awareness, explore the benefits of language learning, discover what it’s like to study a foreign language at a Higher Education level, and hear first-hand experiences of studying and working abroad.  The session also highlights potential career routes in a range of industries that benefit from professionals with a second or third language.

*No prior knowledge of languages is needed to take part in this session; activities are accessible to all.

GM Higher will need to record participation of learners in line with our funding requirements, so we will ask you to provide a register.
