Description: One of the main goals at European Studies (The Hague University of Applied Sciences, the Netherlands) is to prepare the students for a career in an international setting. They learn about politics and business in Europe in several content courses, they learn how to apply this knowledge in several skills courses, and to be able to be really successful once they go into the world they learn the languages of the most important European countries in our language courses. In this presentation we will give you some examples on how we let the language and content courses come together and how we try to inspire and motivate our students to think about their future career in our language projects. Besides, we would like to do some exercises with you to come up with new ideas on integrating language with content.
