Guidance Counsellor Resources
Foreign-language skills will be key to the success of Irish industry in the coming years. As non-English speaking countries take a bigger slice of the global economy and Ireland becomes more diverse, languages will give students a distinct advantage. Language learners tend to be better listeners, better able to juggle competing priorities and are more sensitive to diversity.
