In the corporate world, knowing your customers’ language and culture is vital to success. Communicating clearly and professionally with a potential foreign partner gives you a distinct advantage over competitors. It can also help you get ahead in your career by giving you more opportunities in the workplace all while gaining knowledge to last a lifetime.
The essence of a culture rests in its language. Just like a country’s food or architecture, language tells a story of history and tradition. Not only does it allow people to communicate, it also brings them together.
There are so many reasons to learn a new language through the UWM School of Continuing Education. Whether you’re looking for personal growth or skills to guide you through your travels, you can find a course for all your language needs—from Japanese and Portuguese to American Sign Language. You can even increase your English skills if you are an international student or business professional.
