MISSION STATEMENT
Our mission is to initiate the lifelong process of language learning through authentic and purposeful communication and cultural experiences in various settings in order to connect languages to the world and to unique life experiences.

  • As society becomes increasingly multicultural and multilingual, it has become essential for us to communicate in more than one language.
  • Our ability to do so increases our professional opportunities and enriches our personal experiences.
