Visit from Gewiss UK

9th February 2018

Year 9 had a great visit yesterday from Natalie Keuroghlian of Gewiss UK

"Yesterday Year 9 MFL had a visit from Natalie Keuroghlian, Marketing Manager of Gewiss UK based on the Cambourne Business Park.  She spoke to us about the importance of languages in the modern workplace and about how essential for foreign relations they are.  We found out that only 6% of the world’s population speaks English as a first language.  Another interesting fact that we found out was that having multiple languages on your CV would almost immediately make you a short-list candidate.  Our visitor stressed that multiple languages will always be useful – who knows what will happen after Brexit!  She was asked about the importance of Mandarin and added that French, German and Spanish are highly sought despite the growing prominence of Mandarin.  This talk was very insightful, and made us all realise how useful languages are and how lucky we are to have such a great MFL department at Cambourne Village College."

Aaron, Year 9
