At Binus International, English is used not only as a medium of instruction, but as a living language. Students and lecturers communicate with each other in English in and outside of the classroom. You can often hear English phrases peppering the students’ conversations, and it is the lingua franca between local students and the international students. English Language Services (ELS), a support unit at the Joseph Wibowo Center (JWC), is responsible for the development of English on campus and runs an annual event to promote the fun side of English. The series of events has been running under various names for years and is generally referred to as ‘English Week’. Last year’s events, held from the 9th to the 18th of December, were called ‘Always English’, to encourage the students to think of the language as a tool that they can always use to communicate effectively in an international environment.
