Language Centre, University of Basel
The Language Centre at the University of Basel offers academic language courses and workshops in around 20 languages for students of various disciplines and levels. The general and subject-specific language course programme is complemented by a self-study centre with multimedia learning materials. Learners are further supported in their language acquisition through certificate preparation courses, immersion courses and a summer-intensive-programme for students of German as a foreign language, as well as subject-specific workshops and a tandem database. The Language Centre actively fosters multilingual skills among its students. Accordingly, it conducts surveys and projects in which it collects, documents and interprets the results and on the basis of these findings designs tailor-made course programmes.
