This report explains that 2000-01 was the eighth year in which the Centre for Language and Communication Studies (CLCS) at the University of Dublin's Trinity College offered extracurricular foreign language modules to students who were not studying a foreign language as part of their degree course. The modules are intended to develop students' communication skills for purposes of study, travel, or work experience abroad during their undergraduate years and to enhance their academic qualifications, vocational prospects, and potential for future mobility. 2000-01 was the fourth year in which CLCS provided fully integrated modules in French and German for all junior and senior freshmen taking the degree course in Information and Communications Technology. After describing CLCS' commitment to a research and development ethos, program staffing, and future prospects, the report presents a full account of rates of enrollment, participation, and completion. It focuses on recruitment and participation rates, module design, assessment procedure design, and assessment results for the extracurricular modules and fully integrated modules. Finally, it offers the external examiners' reports. An appendix presents a summary of income and expenditure. (SM)
