Learning German and living abroad has given me so much self confidence and tolerance for other ways of life.
Language training at UW-Madison has been an indispensable part of my research endeavors.
Never quit studying, your language is a gift for life!
I realized that language was my ticket to holding on to this second home across the Atlantic, and I wasn't going to be satisfied until I got to my destination.
Learning a new language is always a challenge, but it's also incredibly inspiring and gratifying.
I can do things personally and professionally that limit others.
My language classes were some of my favorite classes at UW-Madison! They were very different from my other classes because there was a very small class size so you were really able to ask questions and really get to know your professors!
Chinese, Portuguese, Turkish
I really enjoyed the UW-Madison language classes. The teachers are great and do a good job incorporating speaking and listening exercises into the curriculum.
My familiarity with the language has opened up many doors to amazing parts of the Indian cultural landscape that would have otherwise been inaccessible to me.
I think I am more creative and unique because I speak three languages. I appreciate different cultures fully and embrace different art, tastes, sounds and places.
