World Language and Skills Competency Workshop

World Languages Skills and Competencies Workshop

In this workshop, students learn about the competencies and skills that they have been developing in their language classes that are transferable to their work/career in the future. The focus is primarily on the development of Intercultural Competence, which has been rated among the top 10 skills needed for working in the future, and is defined as "a set of cognitive, affective, and behavioral skills and characteristics that support effective and appropriate interaction in a variety of cultural contexts” (Bennett 2008).
