Talk the Talk brings the excitement of languages to life and demonstrates how perseverance with their study can open doors to an array of careers and life experiences.
In collaboration with the European Commission, the Academy has published Talk the Talk as a guide for current undergraduate students and school pupils to illustrate the value of language learning.
The booklet contains personal endorsements of learning languages from leading figures in the arts, sport, media, business, politics and other fields. It includes contributions from Arsène Wenger, Ellen MacArthur, Baroness Jean Coussins and Nick Holzherr. Other contributors include the Head of the UK Representation of the European Commission, Chair of UBS, BBC TV and Radio Presenters, MPs and MEPs and the Director of the VSO’s Africa, Latin America and Caribbean Group.
