Welcome to the World Languages department

Fluency in world languages is vital to a land filled with peoples whose cultures are of diverse backgrounds. The language program instills in students a desire to investigate the ethnic and linguistic differences among world neighbors. Courses further motivate students to communicate in the target language so as to enhance the exchange of friendship, goals and ideals.
