My study of Korean has given me the opportunity to travel, study, and work in a foreign country, and has allowed me to experience the Korean culture in a way that would not be possible otherwise.
Studying a language I was able to experience being at a large university but was able to get to know my professors and classmates well as a result of being in a small department.
Learning German and living abroad has given me so much self confidence and tolerance for other ways of life.
Japanese has opened doors for me - It helped me get my first job, advance to new and exciting positions, and helped me to land new business when I founded my own company.
Portuguese has been an integral part of my everyday personal life since I first started studying it.
Being able to talk to someone and being forced to rack your brain for how to say something is the best way to learn a language.
Be open-minded, go abroad and explore and use the language you are learning in real life situations.
Arabic, French, Hebrew (Modern)
Language affects how the world is perceived, describes all aspects of human existence, and reflects generational attitudes and emotion.
Learning a language allows you to connect with people in a way that is impossible if you can't speak directly.
There are so many opportunities to get involved with local international communities. Practice with native speakers and don't be shy!
