Don't give up languages', employers urge teenagers

CILT’s Employers’ Advisory Group, the only national forum for languages in the workplace, met yesterday, the European Day of Languages, and issued the following statement: Many more teenagers should choose a language at GCSE than are currently doing so. We want them to be ambitious and successful in the competitive global environment in which we all operate – and to enjoy life to the full. We want teenagers to understand that language skills make them more employable. We want more young Britons to have the confidence to live or work abroad for part of their careers. We want them to be able to play their part in solving global challenges and to gain vital international experience to bring back to our businesses and public services.
