Try Life in Another Language
April 28, 2010 by Steve Shacklock

The National Centre for Languages in association with the Department
for Children, Schools and Families launched the 'Try Life in Another
Language' campaign. The campaign is designed to get as many kids
learning a second language at school so that they are better placed to
get a job when they reach the beginning of their careers. The campaign
was launched following a survey of 500 employers which found that
other than I.T, the most important skill for jobseekers was to have a
second language on their CV and this really set them aside from other
candidates and furthermore, salaries for people with another language
was higher.
