Western is proud to offer the Employee Language Program workshops for spring quarter 2014 and thanks President Bruce Shepard and the  President's Office for their continued support of this program.

The WWU Employee Conversational Language workshops are an initiative put  forth by the President's Office to support Western faculty and staff through professional  development and to encourage multicultural outreach and awareness. The  workshops are the result of a combined effort by the College of Humanities and Social Sciences,  the Department of Modern and Classical  Languages, and Extended Education.

In addition to the Spanish workshops, this quarter we are offering a workshop  in Basic Chinese Language and Culture.

For the Spanish workshops - there will be four levels of  workshops and an additional session on Hispanic cultural studies, please select  the level that most appropriately matches your background with Spanish.   For workshop level descriptions and recommended preparation, please visit  the descriptions section on the program webpage.

Workshops will begin the second week of spring quarter, starting on  April 7.  A listing of offerings and times is available on the program home page.

Priority will be given to those interested participants who indicate a high  need.  Be sure to communicate with your supervisor prior to registering  for a workshop; if you have additional questions, a FAQ page is available on the program website).
