In our rapidly expanding world society, many students coming from, or preparing for entry into, business and industry need to obtain the oral, written, and cultural skills necessary to communicate with the diverse clientele of the global workplace. The ability to communicate in foreign boardrooms, foreign factories, and global industries often requires practical application of language skills and cultural sensitivity. Conversely, the ability to speak and understand the languages of newly arrived immigrants entering local industries, computer plants, hospitals, governmental agencies, and elementary and secondary schools also requires language application skills.
