The increase of international business and the globalization of worldviews, products and ideas have raised the importance of learning a second language, something the Gardner-Webb University World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures knows all about. “The world has now become a global village,” said Dr. Bernhard Martin, professor of German and chair of the GWU Department of World Languages, Literatures, and Cultures. “Most jobs, whether it be management, education or business include international contacts and even if the main language of the company is English it is important to try and get the outside view of your own culture and connect to these international business partners.”
