Alumni Profiles


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.

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

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

I think I am more creative and unique because I speak three languages. I appreciate different cultures fully and embrace different art, tastes, sounds and places.

I realized that language was my ticket to holding on to this second home across the Atlantic, and I wasn't going to be satisfied until I got to my destination.

Immerse yourself in the language you want to learn! Don't limit yourself.

I can’t list all the ways that the study of foreign languages has enriched my life. 

Take every opportunity to practice your secondary language, and don’t be afraid to make mistakes.

By knowing another language and living abroad, not only did my intellect grow and deepen, my heart also opened.

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