Alumni Profiles


Language has enriched my life professionally because I am qualified for many different positions based on my language skills and have the ability to acquire more.

 Learning Portuguese opened up new job and travel opportunities for me around the world.

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

From studying Yoruba, I have gained insight into a whole new culture and language.

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

Find a group of people to speak with outside of class. The best way to keep up your language skills is to speak as much as possible!

Be open-minded, go abroad and explore and use the language you are learning in real life situations.

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

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

Learning a language has exposed me to more than just words, but to culture, to people, and different ways of thinking.
