What skills can you gain from WLC coursework?

Oral Communication

Strong oral communication skills are key to the day-to-day interactions that you will have throughout your work life. Taking courses with us improves these in all languages, not just the one we teach you.

Critical Thinking

In our courses, students analyze complex global issues leading to improved critical thinking skills and a better & more just world.

Cross-cultural Communication

True and meaningful exchange requires much more than good grammar and solid syntax. We teach you how to navigate the cultural differences – which along with linguistic proficiency – will make you a true global citizen.
