Language Centre

Language proficiency and good communication skills are vital not only for our academic lives but also for the workplace whether we are employed at a regional company or at an international organisation. However, language goes beyond grammar and vocabulary; it entails cultural understanding and intercultural sensitivity necessary for successful communication on the global market.

The Language Centre offers a variety of courses in English, Spanish, Chinese, French, Italian, Russian and German as a foreign language, as well as communication courses. You can take our courses as a part of your degree programme, as an elective, or on a purely voluntary basis.
