Gain Foreign Language Skills to Prepare for Summer Travel

May 13, 2013 - 14:27

Basic language skills can make the difference between a good vacation or business trip and a great one. Knowing the local language allows travelers to venture off the tourist path and immerse themselves more fully in the local culture. Summer sessions of UNLV Continuing Education’s beginning conversation courses in Mandarin Chinese, French, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish begin in May or early June. Within weeks you will be ready to ask and answer essential questions encountered during personal or business travel. Language courses also introduce students to cultural differences they may encounter during travel.

Course descriptions, class dates and times, fees, and online registration for language classes are available at continuingeducation.unlv.edu. Registrations are also accepted by telephone at 702-895-3394 or in person at UNLV Paradise Campus, 851 E. Tropicana Avenue.
