The girls listened to a talk by Robin Carlisle, Founder and Director of Mobile Promotions, and Shuko Rose, Project Co-coordinator for Robert Bosch, regarding the importance of languages in our business future.
Mr Carlisle stated that: “Respect is gained big time if you can talk with a customer in his and her language”.
Shuko Rose a recently graduated student in International Business shared her personal experience of studying languages and travelling abroad. She explained that “having the extra edge with languages is what will differentiate you in front of your competition”.
The girls completed a series of tasks relating to organising an international music festival for their chosen French pop star: Louane Emera. They explored their leadership, team building and communication skills as well as putting their French knowledge into practise.
All in all, the girls had a fantastic day and can clearly see the relevance of languages in their life later on!
