Hotel Interns Complete English Language Development Course (December 13, 2012)

The Northern Marianas College’s Community Development Institute (CDI) recently recognized twelve individuals who completed twenty-four hours of training in the English Language Development Course.

The twelve individuals of the program are international staff members from Japan and South Korea on internships with the Saipan World Resort.

In the course, the participants learned the fundamentals of the English language, including the grammatical concepts necessary for interactive skills development. Throughout the course, students practiced these concepts through various conversation and written exercises.

The interns completed the course in order to be more well-rounded hospitality employees. Such training would ensure that these interns are able to effectively serve English-speaking hotel customers.

“The ELDC program helps our non-English speaking students to effectively communicate with the customers they serve, thus increasing customer service as well as staff productivity and self-confidence in the workplace,” said Acting CDI Director Floyd Masga.

The Community Development Institute provides a range of specialized academic courses, non-traditional courses, customized training such as workforce development and computer literacy courses, outreach and extended program services, personal enrichment, and community-based learning that are accessible and affordable to the general public.

For more information about these courses, please contact CDI at 234-5498 ext. 1010 or email CDI Program Manager Les Ogumoro-Uludong at [email protected] .
