Portuguese

I really enjoyed the UW-Madison language classes. The teachers are great and do a good job incorporating speaking and listening exercises into the curriculum.

Through language study, I have been lucky enough to travel, live and study in-region and forge strong friendships. A strong command of Spanish and Portuguese has also set me apart professionally in a job market where international experience and expertise are increasingly sought-after attributes.

Through my study of Portuguese I have met friends, travelled and had adventures, learned new ways of seeing the world, and generally had an enormous amount of fun. 

With at least 25% of Americans speaking Spanish as their 1st or 2nd language, I speak Spanish every day.

My professors were so good...they knew me, challenged me, nurtured me.

The unique challenge of language learning and the experience of rediscovering yourself in another tongue always contributed to an unmatched camaraderie between peers.

Portuguese has been an integral part of my everyday personal life since I first started studying it.

Living or working in the country of the language you are studying is a "must." Only then can you appreciate the culture and fully develop a knowledge of the language.

I really would not be where I am today without my knowledge of the Spanish language.

Immersion in a language and culture greatly supplements your study of the language.
