“The experience of learning a language suddenly takes on new relevance and excitement once students begin meeting peers and making friends from the culture they have been studying. They then find that there is so much to talk about. It’s like an ‘aha!’ moment when students realize ‘hey wait a minute…I’m COMMUNICATING in a different language here. Wow, this is fun!’ When you learn German there are so many opportunities for connecting to new people and places.”
