21. Diverse language skills as an asset

Having knowledge of several languages may have a positive effect on
your opportunities for internationalisation in the world of work, at school,
in your local community, or globally. Discuss in pairs how having diverse
language skills plays to your advantage

• when an exchange student visits your classroom
• in international school projects
• in hobbies or other free time activities when you have to give advice to
someone who does not speak your first language. What other skills are
needed besides language skills?

Discuss in pairs what global citizenship skills you have and how you could
describe them.
