Major: Communication Sciences and Disorders & Minor in Spanish
How will foreign language impact your future? As a Speech-Language Pathologist, I will be working with individuals to improve their speech and communication skills. Through this practice, it is possible that I will encounter clients whose primary language is Spanish and are learning to speak English. The knowledge that I have gained and the experiences that I have had with the Spanish language will aid me in working with these clients. I believe that knowing a foreign language will lead to opportunities in my future that I would have otherwise been unlikely to experience.

You can never cross the ocean unless you have the courage to lose sight of the shore.

How will foreign language impact your future? Foreign language is my future. I am so excited to be able to spread my love of languages to other students. After I master Spanish and French, I am sure I will begin learning even another language.

 

If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart. -Nelson Mandela

“The only people for me are the mad ones, the ones who are mad to live, mad to talk, mad to be saved, desirous of everything at the same time, the ones who never yawn or say a commonplace thing, but burn, burn, burn, like fabulous yellow roman candles exploding like spiders across the stars.” -Jack Kerouac

Without language, one cannot hope to talk to people and understand them; one cannot share their hopes and aspirations, grasp their history, appreciate their history or savour their songs. - Nelson Mandela, 1995
