任何一位招聘人员都会告诉你:最热门的技能之一是能够流利地应用一门外语。但是你应该选修哪一门外语呢?

如果你想在全球经济中能够进行有效的沟通,那么答案很简单:英语。全世界已有近2亿人使用英语,而且有越来越多的公司采用英语作为企业的通用语言。

所以,为了促进自己的职业发展,需要抓紧时间学习。美国国务院(Department of State)和宾夕法尼亚大学(University of Pennsylvania)为不以英语为母语的学生免费提供大型网络课程(MOOCs),帮助他们获得适用于各种领域的英语技能。

MOOCs通过免费网络大学平台 Coursera提供。Coursera与与世界各地的一流大学和机构进行合作,可为任何人提供在线课程。每一门课程都将在下一年提供两次。
