Studying a language is not just about enhancing your CV and adding something useful to your skills set. It is also about embracing other cultures, developing intercultural competence, enjoying languages as an exciting object of study, and reflecting on your own national and cultural identity.

A national policy on languages could help to address attitudes towards languages and further promote joined up thinking across the different education sectors.
