Is there a pupil who did not dream to take the position of a teacher? Is there a human being who did not dream to be perfect in a foreign language? A linguist is a person who studies modern languages in depth together with linguistics. A linguist develops practical language skills to a high level. A linguist - a specialist in theory and methods of foreign languages and cultures teaching - is a highly qualified, reflective and competent teacher of two or more foreign languages. A specialist of the kind is sensitive to the demands of the pupils and the job, responsive to a changing education system and committed to continue professional development throughout the career.
