What doors will this open up for me?

The world is full of languages. Think about how many more newspapers and books you could read; films and TV programmes you could watch, songs you could understand, websites you could visit, and people and places that you could really get to know if you could speak another language.

94% of the worlds’ population do not speak English as their first language and 75% of them do not speak English at all. People with languages can be paid £3-5,000 more per year than those without.
