The Centre for International Languages (CIL) or Pusat Bahasa Antarabangsa, is formerly known as the Department of International Languages (DIL). Established on March 1, 2013, the Centre focuses on providing students and staff of Universiti Malaysia Perlis, and the community within its vicinity, with great opportunities to learn languages.
CIL currently provides language courses which are a requirement for students enrolled in all UniMAP programmes, at both diploma and undergraduate degree levels. It caters to the needs of the ever-growing number of students who seek to be proficient not only in Bahasa Melayu and English, but also in a third language of their choice. Apart from Bahasa Melayu and English, other languages offered at CIL are Arabic, German, Japanese, Korean, Mandarin, and Thai.
CIL places priority in equipping UniMAP students with language skills and competencies which are imperative in this era of knowledge and innovation-based economy. Through our language courses, we sharpen 21st century skills in our students and clients, in supporting and nurturing them to be enterprising individuals who will be able to contribute positively in the world of work. Amongst others, the skills include being creative and innovative, adaptable, being able to work in a team, being effective communicators and are good in problem solving. The team at CIL also support students’ learning through the provision of language advisory services, and are ever willing to serve in ensuring that our students and clients get the best from what we have to offer.
