I am amazed! I run a small business and I thought there was a shortage of jobs for good linguists in my area, but I simply cannot find anyone to fill my jobs! Do you think this could be the drop in language uptake filtering through? As a new employer I find this a very worrying situation. We MUST get some decent linguists through our schools and out into the workforce. I used to work as a secondary MFL teacher, but obviously don't anymore so I'd be interested in hearing some teachers' views on the take-up of A level languages and the interest level of pupils in general towards a career in languages. What's going on?!
