[English training for university faculty and staff] Recruitment of participants for “Intercultural understanding and communication in English at university” held on 9/2 (Sat.) and 6 (Wed.)

Purpose of the event

 As the globalization of higher education accelerates, such as the enhancement of support for international students and the promotion of collaborative projects with overseas universities, English proficiency is essential as a basic skill for university teachers and staff.
