Pupils at a school got to grips with the power of languages at a special session organised to teach the importance of learning a foreign tongue.

A number of profesionals, including a Virgin Atlantic pilot and a detective from Northamptonshire Police, gave talks and showed videos to pupils at the Ferrers Specialist Arts College, in Higham Ferrers, to highlight how useful knowing a foreign language could be in the business world.

The college organised the session on Monday, February 4, to show that language skills could be a vital tool for their students gaining future employment.

The session went on throughout the morning and the year nine students taking part got to put their probing questions about languages in business to the profesionals.
