I made this as a KS3 resource to show students that learning languages can certainly open doors in the future. Plan: Students mark on the progress line what they think of languages at the start of the lesson. Students listen to the celebrities talking about the languages that they speak and complete exercise A of the worksheet. Students read the statements and decide which ones are true. These are reviewed throughout the lesson and are finally marked at the end so that students can reflect on their learning throughout the lesson. The resources also include a version of the Game of Life. This is based on real life accounts of linguists. The links to the videos are in the footnotes of the powerpoint slides.

This contains two teaching resources: Resource A: I made this as a KS3 resource to show students that learning languages can certainly open doors in the future. Plan: Students mark on the progress line what they think of languages at the start of the lesson. Students listen to the celebrities talking about the languages that they speak and complete exercise A of the worksheet. Students read the statements and decide which ones are true. These are reviewed throughout the lesson and are finally marked at the end so that students can reflect on their learning throughout the lesson. The resources also include a version of the Game of Life. This is based on real life accounts of linguists. The links to the videos are in the footnotes of the powerpoint slides. Resource B Students complete the word search on page one of the workbook. This has some of the jobs that you can do with a language. Students then play Call my Bluff (explained on the ppt), This game matches job descriptions and jobs. Students then look at some of the international comapnies that recruit linguists by playing a snap game. The lesson ends with a true false test on why languages are important. This is also on resource A One of the video links is used again in resource B. I made resource B to follow on from A that I had used in the previous year.
