Models for teaching language as an additional competence (MUST)

This development project, funded by the Danish National Centre for Foreign Languages (NCFF), aims to develop a set of models for offering instruction in language as an additional competence to students outside of the traditional foreign language and literature programs. The development of these models is based on an analysis of such language needs at ten institutions of higher education representing different types of programs.
