My German skills have enabled me to do a lot of things that I otherwise couldn't.

Immerse yourselves as fully as possible at your earliest opportunity, and become comfortable with making a fool of yourself on a daily basis. Fluency will follow.

Living in China has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life...Chinese has made me a better person.

I think learning languages is really fun and also a valuable window to culture.

Learning about Scandinavian culture and politics has really shaped my views on the world—and I owe my marriage to my Norwegian class! It doesn't get much better than that.

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.

Through Spanish, I have access to another culture and world of information. 

Spanish opened the door to fabulous worlds!

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

Learning Hmong has changed my perspective on the Hmong culture and strengthened my relationship with my community along with my parents.
