The ability to communicate in other languages and cultures will help students in almost any career they choose. When students study a language at Griffith, they will not just learn to speak and write the words, they will also study linguistics - the science, nature and function of language and how it is used in society. Understanding how languages are developed and used will help students gain a solid understanding of their chosen language.Students will apply their knowledge of linguistics and their chosen language in real world challenges including second language learning and teaching, intercultural communication, and effective use of digital technologies. Students will learn in small classes, where they will receive individual attention. Whether a student is a total beginner or quite fluent, students will find courses to suit. Students will also be exposed to the cultural context of their chosen language with options to pursue study overseas through exchanges and study abroad programs.
