|Field of Study:||Intercultural/Multicultural and Diversity Studies
|Description:||What is the connection between language and identity? What does the way we speak say about who we are, where we come from and how we got here? How can we acknowledge cultural differences to build bridges and bring people closer together? Learning another language is not only opening a new window on the world in which we live; it is also a way to know ourselves better. The Department of Languages, Literatures and Cultures uses a communicative approach that enables students to work on all four language skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing. Ryerson offers courses for all levels, including for true beginners, intermediate, advanced and even for native speakers. Additionally, we offer a number of courses for advanced students with a focus on business communication and translation.
