For those students not studying a language as part of their degree, there are a number of optional language courses whose aim is to develop communication skills for study or work abroad. Current language options are French, German, Irish, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Spanish and Turkish. See https://www.tcd.ie/Broad_Curriculum/language/.
