Our second inter-schools event for the Languages network was hosted by law firm Freshfields Bruckhaus Deringer LLP nd was a chance for students to explore how studying languages could help them for the rest of their lives. A ‘no-speaking’ ice breaker was the first challenge and quickly spelt out the importance of different levels of communication to work together successfully. A panel of Freshfields lawyers were then interviewed by our students about how they use their languages in their jobs. Finally each business team was given a different style of communication, from ‘avoidance’ to ‘aggressive’ and told to conduct a business meeting. This challenge was made even harder when some team members had to excuse themselves to take a conference call from Paris! The Freshfields panel were incredibly impressed with the entrepreneurial spirit shown by all the students.
