Language Careers

If you can read and understand another language, you’ll have a competitive edge when it comes to a career. For those of you who enjoy exploring new cultures and communicating, then a career based in languages could be ideal.

In such an interconnected world, professionals with speaking and writing skills in more than one language are highly regarded in many multinational companies, not-for-profit and aid organisations, and in foreign affairs and government departments.
