- Study on Foreign Language Proficiency and Employability [Informe completo]
- Executive summary
This study provides an overview of the state of play of labour market demand for foreign language proficiency in all EU-28 Member States. It examines how this demand varies across countries, economic sectors and job roles; shows how employers express their foreign language needs in online vacancy notices; and analyses to what extent foreign language skills present a distinct competitive advantage for both companies and job seekers. Between June and October 2015, 845 interviews with employers and employer organisations were conducted, 3632 online vacancy notices were reviewed, and 522 employers were surveyed. Based on the analysis of this comprehensive data collection this study formulates recommendations on how to improve the match between the supply and demand of foreign language skills in the labour market.
