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

I feel like everything I learn in a language class, I bring home with me and it becomes a part of my life.

I really would not be where I am today without my knowledge of the Spanish language.

Language learning makes me feel less cut off from the world.

Students in Spanish classes always seemed more connected than those in my other classes.

Studying languages has enriched my life in countless ways.

Learning Kazakh was an entirely new experience, as it brought me out of my comfort zone and exposed me to an entirely new culture with vastly different beliefs, traditions and customs.

With at least 25% of Americans speaking Spanish as their 1st or 2nd language, I speak Spanish every day.

 Learning Portuguese opened up new job and travel opportunities for me around the world.

Learning German has changed my life forever.
