English Language with a Modern Language - University of Huddersfield

**Language is how we make sense of the world. It is fundamental to our perception of what’s around us, and our place in society. We’ll look at linguistics in depth so you can analyse language and assess how it works. You’ll have the chance to develop a range of language styles, and the tools to describe them as well as the different concepts, theories and tools of different branches of linguistics. The ability to speak a foreign language is more and more sought after in this globalised world.** Why English Language with a Modern Language? - State-of-the-art facilities including a forensic linguistics lab, a research and resource centre and conference labs. - Opportunity to take a five-week placement as part of the ‘Language in the Workplace’ module – a chance to see how the language skills you’ve learnt on the course can be applied to communication in a working environment. - Get involved in the writing, editing and production of the popular department linguistics magazine, Babel. - Our team of academic staff are ranked in the top 5 in the UK for the quality of their research publications (REF 2014). - Foreign language options include French, German and Spanish. On your course you could also build up transferable skills such as communication, self-motivation, teamwork, analysis, creative problem-solving and persuasiveness, all of which will be useful in the professional environment. Studying a foreign language alongside your linguistics studies will give you a unique perspective on the importance of language and give you the opportunity to look at the society and cultures of the countries where the language is spoken.
