College of Letters & Science | International Division
My entire career is built on the language study I did at the UW.
Before I even stepped onto the campus, I knew I would take numerous language classes here.
Learning Hmong has changed my perspective on the Hmong culture and strengthened my relationship with my community along with my parents.
I feel passionate about seeing the world from as many different vantage points as possible, and trying to place all the struggles and triumphs of humanity into a deeper, more meaningful context.
Languages have completely changed the course of my life and the way I view the world in ways I never could have predicted.
You never know where your language will lead you.
Living and working abroad opened my eyes to the world in ways I didn't know possible.
Be open-minded, go abroad and explore and use the language you are learning in real life situations.
Spanish, French, Latin
Spanish opened the door to fabulous worlds!
My Spanish classes seemed more engaging than my non-language courses —I was always excited to go and could always count on my professors being excited as well.
