College of Letters & Science | International Division
Learning a new language or learning about your own language will help you discover so much about that culture.
If you enjoy learning a language, pursue it fully and experience some of the cultures that speak that language. It will enrich your life.
Before I even stepped onto the campus, I knew I would take numerous language classes here.
Arabic, Chinese, Hebrew (Modern), Spanish
Studying languages has meant everything to me.
I feel that learning the language of the community you are aiming to support demonstrates commitment and passion.
My choice of language has taken me to some of the most amazing places in the world.
Taking Arabic as a foreign language forced me to access and challenge other parts of my brain.
I feel passionate about learning, exploring, and growing through language education and cultural understanding.
Learning Hmong has changed my perspective on the Hmong culture and strengthened my relationship with my community along with my parents.
There are so many opportunities to get involved with local international communities. Practice with native speakers and don't be shy!
