Abstract

In today’s digital age, Languages graduates need more specific skills than fluency in the foreign language and intercultural competence. Employers expect from all applicants a high level of computer literacy and a set of soft skills such as creativity or the ability to solve problems and work on team projects. Modern Foreign Language (MFL) departments should therefore promote teaching techniques that would enable their graduates to become employable, at the same time ensuring that the students become aware of their own professional and personal development. This article provides an example of projects concentrated specifically on development of technology and media skills.
