How You'll Learn - More than Just Learning to Speak a Language

By devoting ourselves to research within a range of cultural and theoretical areas and innovation in language acquisition, we are committed to promoting a dynamic and diverse learning community wherein students may comfortably develop personal talents and human qualities. Our faculty continually emphasize language performance and intercultural competence and create innovative and exciting opportunities for individual, hands-on experience. Students' success is shown in many ways but most importantly by success in real communicative settings. Our approach allows you to learn a language with upper-level courses in literature, film, society and more, furthering our mission of exposing students to new cultures and developing a tolerance for difference.
