Transcript of Come to Northern Ireland














All providers are inspected and accredited by the British Council to ensure
high standards in teaching, management, facilities and welfare provision.
According to language researcher David Graddol…
a working knowledge of English is fast becoming a “life skill” the same as literacy and numeracy…
a skill that most people will need to be able to function in the modern, global economy.
1.
That was in 2005…

In 2013, in a country the size of Brazil
English must already be considered a life skill.
2.
3.
A powerful economy = greater opportunities = greater competition
4.
In fact, English alone is probably no longer enough and you will soon
need several languages to set yourself apart…
