Learning objectives

In today's global economy an increasing number of people from different linguistic backgrounds use English as a lingua franca. Over the following decades the use of English between two non-native speakers will continue to increase. More and more people will be working in an English-speaking environment and increasingly people will be applying for a job in English.

This module helps you to prepare for this evolution.
