Linguistics at Surrey University

A selection of St Mary’s most talented linguists were invited to spend a day at the University of Surrey to learn about how learning a language can open doors to different career paths. The event, organised by Routes into Languages was entitled Languages at Work. Students were given excellent talks by interpreters and business executives about how learning a language has given them opportunities to travel, learn and earn. We were also lucky enough to have the chance to experience taster lessons in Portuguese and Italian. Even Mr Sadler picked up a few new words! St Mary’s students were excellent contributors on the day and really showed off their exceptional language skills.
