Dean's Message

 

Welcome to the Centre for Language Studies (CLS)  

To all visitors, enjoy taking your time to peruse this site highlighting our services, facilities and accomplishments.

The Centre for Language Studies (CLS) is committed towards enhancing students' language and communication skills.  We serve the language needs of all the faculties and centres at UTHM.  We offer a wide array of English and International language courses to approximately 6,000 students per semester, catering for their academic, personal and professional needs.  The courses offered by CLS also enable the students to learn necessary writing, speaking and critical thinking skills to help equip them for success in the classroom, workplace and in today's world of growing globalisation and internationalisation.  

Besides the four well-equipped multimedia language laboratories, the Centre has its own Writing Unit that provides services in translation, editing and proofreading to all UTHM and non-UTHM clientele. At present, the Writing Unit also provides one-on-one writing help for all students to make them become better writers.  

We have established professional connections with 'Institut Terjemahan Negara' (Malaysian National Institute of Translation) and 'Dewan Bahasa dan Pustaka'. Apart from rendering our services to all UTHM students, we offer a variety of language courses to UTHM academic and non-academic staff.  We have also reached out to the community through various courses, events and programmes.

As Roger Bacon puts it, "Knowledge of languages is the doorway to wisdom".

"With wisdom we explore".

Be an explorer with CLS.
