LWD Languages at Work through Drama.
A Foreign Language Practice Method for Personnel that supports Internationalization at Home.
This method stimulates the practice of a foreign language among university/college personnel while they are at work. Developing foreign language proficiency among personnel improves the Internationalization at Home processes. We do not promote any publishers or sell any materials.
Note: This method not intended to be a "one-size-fits-all" model. It is intended to be a flexible, open and adaptable method. It was created to serve as a provocative resource, a sensitizer, a reference, which educational institutions can tap into in its entirety or only utilize the parts that are needed or useful.
