My language classes were some of my favorite classes at UW-Madison! They were very different from my other classes because there was a very small class size so you were really able to ask questions and really get to know your professors!

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

I've been able to travel to many French-speaking countries and being able to speak the language makes the experience all the more rewarding.

Being able to travel to and live in a foreign country without having to rely on English is a very proud and empowering experience.

My professors were so good...they knew me, challenged me, nurtured me.

Learning German has changed my life forever.

My study of Korean has given me the opportunity to travel, study, and work in a foreign country, and has allowed me to experience the Korean culture in a way that would not be possible otherwise.

You never know where your language will lead you.

The language classes were a good place to find a sense of community within the large university.

Languages have completely changed the course of my life and the way I view the world in ways I never could have predicted.
