Alumni Profiles


Studying languages has always been a passion of mine, and the opportunity to live and study in another country is completely invaluable to one's personal development.

There isn't a day that goes by where I don't catch myself thinking in another language or remembering vocab words for things that I see!

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

It’s a small world! Learn to talk to other people in it!

Being a speaker of Japanese is an important part of my identity today, and something that I'll always carry with me.

Language classes was are intense yet fun and full-filling.

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.

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.

My time in Spain also allowed me to develop my own interests and come to appreciate what I love and want to be doing with my life. 

Learning Italian has opened my eyes to a new culture (and cuisine!) in a way that I wouldn't understand without knowing the language itself.
