CIP 160101 (FL1 / FL2)

Knowing a foreign language is a skill in high demand. Entrepreneurs, business and non-profit organizations want to reach as many people as possible to become future clients. Businesses want to have a wide-range of employees on hand to help customers from all backgrounds in order to resolve a problem, sell a product or service or even an idea. Having multi-lingual employees will give the company an edge over their competitor. Professionals in government will continue to play a prominent role in world affairs. Foreign language training is essential to the outcomes of our global interaction. This program provides training in spoken language skills as well as international, business, historical, political and cultural competencies.
