Sanako Career Talks Continue to Enthuse Students About MFL!

David Binns, Director of Operations for Sanako UK & Ireland, has now delivered well in excess of 350 inspirational career talks to students in both state & independent sectors stressing the importance of a second language skill in any chosen career and at initial job interview stage.

These talks are always extremely well received by staff, students & parents with most schools asking for a return visit by him. We hope to one day have him back to doing his every day job too, he has a business to run!


What the MFL teachers say - Wyedean School and Sixth Form Centre

Hi David,

Following on from the success of your talks in January this year, and the biggest uptake that we have had for Languages over the last 10 years (92 students!), we would love for you to come and visit us again in January 2024 to talk to Year 9 French about languages/GCSE options. Are you still able to do this? We would be very grateful if you would pop in for a visit when you are in the area! 

I look forward to hearing from you.

Best wishes,

Rebecca Simpson

What the MFL teachers say - Queens Park High School

Dear David

You may remember coming to Queen’s Park High School in Chester last year to speak to our somewhat moody Year 9s about languages in the workplace.

We had a 300% increase in GCSE options for languages this year, which we are thrilled about! Could we book you again for this year please?”

Jane Whitehouse,

Queen’s Park High School,

Hi David,

I just wanted to get in touch to let you know that we have definitely increased our number for GCSE MFL next year. We have received a lot more interest, and, compared to last year, we have had double the number of students choosing Spanish as their first option for GCSE. We are delighted!

Thanks for your support!

What the MFL Teachers Say - Stockport Academy

Good Evening David

I would just like to say, on behalf of Stockport Academy, Year 9 and the MFL Department thank you so much for your time and wise words today in your inspirational talk today.

Tonight we had Year 9 Parent's Evening and it was something which was brought up a lot as I discussed MFL options with Parents/Carers and our students. So I would definitely take that as a success as they very much enjoyed your talk.

Thanks again

What the MFL Teachers Say - Trinity St Edward's Academy

Wow! What a presentation, what a speaker and what an impact. Our Year 9 were really lucky to hear from David from Sanako UK this morning about the benefit of languages in the world of work. I've had lots of questions already with the best being " So i'll definitely be able to take languages?"

Thank you
