Learning a language allows you to connect with people in a way that is impossible if you can't speak directly.

I feel passionate about understanding the world!

My professors were so good...they knew me, challenged me, nurtured me.

The language classes were a good place to find a sense of community within the large university.

I credit UW-Madison for preparing me to develop a well-rounded, people-based approach to language, history and literature. 

I'll always be grateful for following through on my decision to learn Norwegian.

Once you open yourself up to learning world languages, they will open you up to the world.

I cannot express how much my study abroad experience in Rovinj, Croatia means to me. I light up any time that I talk about it or look at pictures. There's so much that I gained from it - from knowledge to confidence.

Studying languages has enriched my life in countless ways.

Living and working abroad opened my eyes to the world in ways I didn't know possible.
