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.

Don't stop at one language. After just a couple years into your first one, you'll find you can pick up completely unrelated languages because your mind begins seeking the subtleties that make acquisition easier.

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.

I've found studying Thai language to be quite intrinsically rewarding. Truthfully, the whole process has been just a lot of fun. 

The experience of learning new languages seems to automatically open up your mind to other experiences and you naturally view the world differently.

Learning a language allows you to connect with people in a way that is impossible if you can't speak directly.

Throughout the years, I learned two things about studying a language; the first being learning a new language is very difficult because it forces you to think in a way that no other course does. The second is that no matter how hard you work to improve your language skills there will always be something you don't know. 

Studying Hebrew has shaped my education and has always made me love learning.

 I loved the small class sizes. I loved getting to know the faculty early on and having them remember me a year later when I took another class with them. 

I can do things personally and professionally that limit others.
