Sr. Modern Language Specialist & Lead Presenter
In My Words:
For me, the best part about learning a new language is that it goes beyond simply gaining the ability to have a conversation– it’s about learning how people of different cultures interact with one another and live their lives. Language learning encapsulates culture, tradition, history, and emotion; it’s about the human experience, and fostering a greater sense of community, globally.
I’m always amazed by how similar, yet distinct, people from all over the world can be. My curiosity for new insight and experiences never ends. I think learning and exploring a new language can be a daunting and, for many, an intimidating process, but I've found that the more open you are to communicating, listening, and taking part, the more you have to gain.
