"A different language is a different vision of life."

Federico Fellini, filmmaker

Learning new languages brings many fantastic benefits to a young person’s life. Language skills can:

  • open the doors to travel and work opportunities
  • help you develop your confidence
  • improve your knowledge of your own language
  • develop your insight into other cultures

Throughout their time at Douglas Academy, modern languages students take part in all kinds of interesting activities, from reading stories to watching films and learning about the histories of other countries. They also have opportunities to take part in interesting trips and exciting overseas excursions, like our French exchange programme.
