On 14th June, our Modern Languages Department and the University of Oxford hosted a conference for students looking at the benefits of studying languages at university. The event was well attended by pupils from KEHS as well as other schools in the city. Over the course of the afternoon our visitors spoke about the importance of knowing another language, job opportunities for linguists upon graduation and what students should consider when applying to study languages at university. A second year undergraduate at Exeter College spoke about her experience starting a language ab initio; and three postgraduate students also gave mini lectures covering Dante’s Inferno, Surrealism and the problems created by Google Translate. An enjoyable afternoon was had by all, and I hope that those who attended are even more intrigued to take their language learning to the next level!
