Linklaters Work Place Visit

Last term, language students visited Linklaters International Law Firm.

It was a fantastic and exciting experience as we had the chance to not only develop our presentational skills but also to enhance our French, Mandarin and Spanish speaking skills.

We enjoyed interacting with those working there and asking them questions about their work and how languages have helped them become who they are today. We had a tour of the offices, which was very interesting as we met with many people along the way with interesting stories to tell.  In addition, we got to use our language skills by playing communication games and communicating via Skype with workers in France, Spain and China.

We truly enjoyed our experience there. It was a one in a lifetime opportunity and made us realise just how important languages are and how languages can help us make decisions about our futures.

Some of us even spoke about the event in our recent Speaking Controlled Assessments.Please enter some content for your news story here.
