The background speakers level languages are designed for students who have a background in the language and who have had more than 1 year's education in a country where the language is spoken.
Students develop intercultural communication skills through examining relationships between language, culture, and identity and reflecting on the ways in which culture is created, expressed, and communicated through language.
Students clarify, extend, and develop their ideas and opinions on the prescribed themes and contemporary issues, and develop their capability to communicate, interact, and negotiate meanings within and across languages and cultures.
