This is a topic that has been bugging me for a while. A lot of children are choosing Media for GCSE instead of doing a Modern Language. Very very few of them will ever work in media. Had they chosen French or German, they would have had a skill for life, highly valued by employers. The average 14 year old will choose media over languages anyday, but I am convinced that a language provides a more satisfying course and is more highly respected by employers.
