According to the British Council, there were around 1.7 billion people learning and using English worldwide in 2015, forecast to rise to 2 billion by 2020.
There are hundreds of language schools throughout the UK, as well as opportunities to teach English as a foreign language (TEFL) in places like Japan, China and other East Asian countries, the Middle East, parts of Eastern Europe, Spain, Italy and Germany.
On successful completion of this course, you can start applying immediately to a range of potential employers, including commercial language schools, education and development organisations, government departments, multinational companies, The British Council and a whole host of international volunteer organisations and NGOs.
Alternatively, if you decide not to teach, successfully completing this course should have prepared you for any career that involves the use of language and particularly those professions where communication dominates: the media and cultural industries, primary and secondary education, public relations, marketing and advertising.
