languages are important

  1. 1. If only I’d taken a language at GCSE……… She’s so beautiful. The woman of my dreams. I wish I could speak to her in her own language, then maybe I’d have a chance….
  2. 2. If only I’d taken a language at GCSE……… I can’t believe she got the pay rise instead of me! And all because she can speak French to the people at our Paris offices……
  3. 3. If only I’d taken a language at GCSE……… I just can’t believe I didn’t get into the university I wanted to go to. I didn’t realise they’d want me to have a languages GCSE. Now what am I going to do??
  4. 4. If only I’d taken a language at GCSE……… We missed our train because I couldn’t understand what the announcement said. Now I’ll never make that meeting in Hamburg. The contract will go to our rivals this time for sure.
  5. 5. If only I’d taken a language at GCSE……… Doh! If I’d have been able to read the instructions then I’m sure I’d never have blown up the brand new stereo I had imported……
  6. 6. If only I’d taken a language at GCSE……… My boss wanted to send someone to night classes to learn a new language. He said it’d help the company welcome our new employees from abroad. I really wanted to do it, but he picked him . All because he’d done a language before……
  7. 7. If only I’d taken a language at GCSE……… I just wish I’d been able to understand my client when she told me what haircut she wanted. Then she wouldn’t have ended up with those awful highlights I gave her.
  8. 8. If only I’d taken a language at GCSE……… If my boss had seen me working on that brand new Audi R8 he’d have definitely promoted me. Shame I didn’t understand what the owner wanted me to do………
