Old Birkdalian Vikki Cleveland took time off from her medical degree at Leeds University to come and talk to a class of S4 boys about the advantages of studying modern languages.
Vikki, who took Spanish at 'A' level, has taken a course in Medical Spanish as part of her degree and next year hopes to do her hospital placement in Peru. In response to lively questioning from her engaged and curious audience, Vikki said; " It's all about opening doors and giving yourself as many opportunities and advantages as you can in life. There are no downsides to be able to speak another language".
