Your next steps...

Your language will be useful to you in your future life in a wide range of careers.  Companies are wishing to recruit not just interpreters and translators, but people trained in other areas (from accountancy to zoology) who have a language as an additional skill.  Many Universities have re-designed their courses to enable students to continue the study of a language alongside their chosen subject.
