We are delighted to announce the web launch of a new video series ‘More Languages More Options’, seven short films on the value of foreign language skills. Each of the short films has a sub-title and these are: ‘Languages for Jobs’, ‘Languages for Science’, ‘Languages for the Workplace’, ‘Languages for Sport’, ‘Languages for the Arts’, ‘Languages for Education and Research’, and ‘Languages for Google’. The films do not focus on any language in particular but rather on the general value of learning any foreign language. We have serious talking heads, scientists, a concert pianist, Trappatoni’s interpreter, as well as trendy young Irish people in the workplace who not only use foreign languages on a daily basis but have got to where they are because of their foreign language skills.
