French

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.

Speaking certain languages has helped me really dive into new cultures.

Studying languages has made me a more understanding and communicative individual. In the case of Swahili, we spent the majority of time third year discussing political and societal issues in East Africa. By forcing myself to think critically and express myself using a completely different grammatical system and vocabulary, I broadened my capacity to understand another culture. 

I feel passionate about understanding the world!

Studying language at UW-Madison has weaved its way through many facets of my life, always enriching and always improving me.

I've been able to travel to many French-speaking countries and being able to speak the language makes the experience all the more rewarding.

Learning a new language opens up your life in a way that nothing else can.

The experience of learning new languages seems to automatically open up your mind to other experiences and you naturally view the world differently.

My language classes were some of my favorite classes at UW-Madison! They were very different from my other classes because there was a very small class size so you were really able to ask questions and really get to know your professors!

Language affects how the world is perceived, describes all aspects of human existence, and reflects generational attitudes and emotion.
