“Learning a foreign language not only reveals how other societies think and feel, what they have experienced and value, and how they express themselves, it also provides a cultural mirror in which we can more clearly see our own society.”

Chancellor Edward Lee Gorsuch

Statement of Philosophy:

We believe that language is central to the understanding of culture. In a changing world, knowledge of foreign languages and cultures is essential.  In addition, the ability to communicate in other languages gives one access to the wider social, political, and economic world.  The study of other languages also develops greater competence in and awareness of one’s own language and culture.
