Most second language learners are able to reach an adequate level of fluency in oral communication. Mastery of written communication, however, demands more time and effort. This imbalance between speaking and writing a second language is often a problem for people actively seeking to advance in their careers.

In order to help these people acquire the proficiency and confidence needed to accomplish a variety of professional tasks in written French, the Department of Language and Intercultural Communication is offering an online program designed for effective written communication in the workplace: the Certificate of Proficiency in Written French – Workplace Communication.
