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.
Learning a language has exposed me to more than just words, but to culture, to people, and different ways of thinking.
People's eyes light up when you speak their native language. A door opens and a new relationship is full of more possibilities and connections than before.
Meeting people and discovering culture through a language will give it a special significance to you.
Learning Spanish and Portuguese challenged me in a way that allowed me to come to learn a lot about myself and what I value.
Languages have completely changed the course of my life and the way I view the world in ways I never could have predicted.
Study or do an internship abroad so that you can use your language skills in context. There is no substitute for actually having to use the language you're learning to get around a country, shop in a market, etc.!
Spanish, French, Latin
Spanish opened the door to fabulous worlds!
Appreciate the progress you have made, but don't be afraid to tackle new words or try a different method of learning the language.
My Spanish classes seemed more engaging than my non-language courses —I was always excited to go and could always count on my professors being excited as well.
