Language training at UW-Madison has been an indispensable part of my research endeavors.

You never know where your language will lead you.

Learning a new language is always a challenge, but it's also incredibly inspiring and gratifying.

Appreciate the progress you have made, but don't be afraid to tackle new words or try a different method of learning the language.

Immersion in a language and culture greatly supplements your study of the language.

Studying languages has enriched my life in countless ways.

Don't stop at one language. After just a couple years into your first one, you'll find you can pick up completely unrelated languages because your mind begins seeking the subtleties that make acquisition easier.

Languages are keys, and they open many doors. There are many doors that Arabic can unlock, and I discover more all the time.

Never quit studying, your language is a gift for life!

Learning a new language opens up your life in a way that nothing else can.
