Second Languages

In our Language and Culture courses, students develop basic levels of communicative competency. Performance-based programs offer students diverse and multiple means of developing their communication skills, linguistic knowledge, cultural understanding, intercultural competence and language learning strategies. Students use their life experiences, knowledge, skills and attitudes as a basis for developing their second-language communicative abilities for real-life purposes.

All language programs share common goals such as the development of cultural and intercultural competencies, metalinguistic awareness and communicative capacity for personal needs. The development of cultural and intercultural competencies supports students in becoming responsible global citizens. Second language education promotes personal development by encouraging students to take risks and persevere with challenges in the learning process.

Learning an additional language provides students with opportunities to develop the competencies required of engaged thinkers and ethical citizens with an entrepreneurial spirit.
