We have finally reached the end of another long, yet very rewarding University year and whilst much of the campus begins to wind down, the Worldwise Learning Centre will remain open with all of its fantastic resources and facilities available not just to students and staff, but also to the wider public throughout the summer months.
With summer showers being an inevitable fixture of the British forecast, you may find yourself looking for a fun and productive way of passing the time until the sun decides to reappear. Worldwise provides the perfect retreat, offering a unique and exciting opportunity for language learning which caters for a range of different levels and abilities. The award-winning and world leading language software Rosetta Stone has 18 different languages for you to choose from and allows you to learn at your own pace, making it easy to fit your language learning around your summer schedule.
In addition to this programme, we have extensive language-learning resources related to world languages, culture and intercultural communication that you are free to access at any time, with a large and varied collection of reference books, dictionaries and DVDs all available here at the Centre. We also provide a wide range of the latest international newspapers and magazines, allowing you to always stay up-to-date and connected with the rest of the world during the university break.
In addition, the Centre offers great opportunities for businesses looking to enhance their intercultural communication over the summer, with the Centre boasting advanced video conferencing facilities and digital conference interpreting suites. Our facilities provide the perfect setting for simultaneous interpreting, presentations and mini-conferences for up to 30 participants.
With all these facilities and resources on offer, you will always find something to keep you occupied on those long summer days. The Centre’s Helpdesk is open Monday – Thursday 9.00 -17.00 and between 9.00 -16.00 on Fridays so feel free to drop in at any time.
Have a wonderful summer and we hope to see you soon!
