The round-table event took place at the Haverstock School in London in occasion of the European Day of Languages. The participants shared their own experiences in language learning and agree: When engaging with language learning today and promoting cultural understanding among young people, this will have long-term impact. The cultural mindset among young people will change and will lay the ground for better employability when in the globalised job market later.
