Modern Language Specialist
In My Words:
I first fell in love with modern languages when I traveled to Santiago de Compostela in Spain. While walking down the crowded, narrow streets of this majestic medieval city, looking at the local people gathered at tables sharing tapas, wine, and lively conversation, I could not help but think about how people have been gathering in these same streets for over 800 years, and for that moment, I had become a part of that immense history.
Through my work at VHL, I have been able to inspire others to discover their passion for the study of modern languages. When I was presenting “Imaginez” to a group of professors and students, I showed them J’attendrai le suivant, one of our authentic short films. Afterwards, one of the students in the audience shouted that she would continue on to Intermediate French if she would see more films like that in class!
