Pilot projects by faculty

Over the project period of five years (2013-2018), The Language Strategy has completed a number of pilot projects aimed at strengthening the students’ language proficiency for specific situations. The projects are a result of continuous dialogue and collaboration across the many academic disciplines at the University and are intended to function as a joint knowledge base for the benefit of everyone involved.
