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 English, 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 English – Workplace Communication.
