GCSE foreign languages: 'I can speak to the customers directly'
The National Centre for Languages in Wales has turned to the sciences to reverse the decline in pupils choosing a foreign language at GCSE.
The centre, also called Cilt Cymru, is working with 32 schools to find new ways of encouraging teenagers to study a language.
One project is with Stemnet, which promotes science, technology, engineering and maths.
It wants pupils to consider career prospects from combining science subjects with a language.
Sarah Broadhead works in the sales team at Tata Steel in Llanwern. She speaks French and Spanish.
Her languages are a vital part of her role in the company, which has customers across the world.
She explains to BBC Wales education correspondent Nicola Smith how language learning helped her career.
