Languages at SSEES
Learning a new language will develop your communication skills, enhance your socio-cultural understanding and improve your career prospects. SSEES offers an incredible range of Eastern European languages spoken by half a billion people. Why not study one?
" "Learning a foreign language is more than just a boost to your CV or handy for travelling. It will make you smarter and more decisive" (Merritt, 2013).
