LING11-102: World Languages


World Languages provides you with an insight into a fascinating world of human languages. This innovative subject prepares you for the challenges of language learning and  explores how languages are interconnected with communities and their cultures, why we all sound different and how languages we speak condition our world view. You will also learn why learning languages can be difficult and why the advantages of you learning an additional language are monumental. You will have a unique opportunity to explore and sample some of the language studies offered by the Faculty of Society and Design.  This language education subject can either be taken as an introduction to learning the language of your choice, or as an elective. The subject aims to reinforce your love and enthusiasm for languages, the way they express cultures and help us become global citizens.
