The focus of this module is on developing and refining your communication skills and on building your information literacy skills. Current research indicates that successful people are those who are able to relate to and communicate effectively with the people with whom they work. Since the language of learning of this university is English, we conduct this course in that language. We are not here to place any language in a position that would suggest superiority or inferiority. It is an accident of history that English occupies a position where it is widely used in the world, whereas other languages are less widely used. However, in order to have greater access to that world, we believe that it is worthwhile for you to become as competent as you can in your use of English, as it is an international language.
