Hi everyone,

-> Modern languages: degree courses in freefall by Anna Bawden on The Guardian, Tuesday 8 October 2013
A new analysis of the latest data shows that language degree courses are closing at an alarming rate. What can be done?
As students return to their campuses, many will be wondering what sort of a job market they will find when they graduate. According to the Confederation of British Industry, recovery hinges on expanding exports. But the UK is being held back by a lack of language skills, crucial to doing business abroad. Lack of linguistic ability is acting as a "tax on UK trade", the CBI concludes.

Please feel free to point out big mistakes in my messages in a foreign language. Thanks to your remarks, I'll be able to improve my level.
PS: Pls note that I chose American English for my vocabulary, grammar, spelling, culture, etc.  :-)
