I am a passionate linguist and recognise that foreign languages bring a richness to one's own life that few other human endeavours can.

I'm signing as a graduate of the University of Hull's excellent Language Department. In the current political climate, it is more important than ever that universities play the role of bastions of cultural awareness. This cannot be achieved by closing the Department.
