    Hiya

    I'm 17 years old and would like to become a forensic linguist when I'm finished at university, or just any career in linguistics if that fails to work out well for me. My school has arranged a work experience week on week commencing July 4th, what placement could I undertake to prepare me for this?

    Thanks

    Hi there.
    Forensic linguistics is very interesting so I'm not surprised you want to get into it.
    For your work experience I would suggest looking for something that allows you to examine what other people are writing - for example in a newspaper office or communications team.
    Good luck with your career plans!
