An opportunity to contribute your views to the programme. Is it worthwhile learning another language? What are the advantages of being multilingual and why do many of us struggle?

On Call You and Yours this week we pose the question: Is it worthwhile learning another language? If you speak a few words of French, German or Chinese, or maybe you're even fluent in them, we want to know how and why you mastered it.

How does this skill improve your life? Does having another language help you get under the skin of another country, make international friends, and even boost your business?

Or perhaps you've struggled, or not even bothered, to learn another language, relying on others to speak English. After all, plenty of people abroad speak good English, don't they, and relish any opportunity to practise!
