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.

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

 Everyday, I get to use my own experiences to benefit others all while continuing to learn about the world around me through other languages and cultures. Langauge learning does not end in the classroom. Get out there, put yourself in uncomfortable situations and don't be afraid to make mistakes!

Never quit studying, your language is a gift for life!

I really enjoyed the UW-Madison language classes. The teachers are great and do a good job incorporating speaking and listening exercises into the curriculum.

Study and live abroad, immerse yourself in the culture and life.

Appreciate the progress you have made, but don't be afraid to tackle new words or try a different method of learning the language.

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

Learning German and living abroad has given me so much self confidence and tolerance for other ways of life.

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