Modern classical languages rationale l.jpg

Modern & Classical LanguagesRationale

  • Learning to speak another’s language means taking one’s place in the human community. It means reaching out to others across cultural and linguistic boundaries. Language is far more than a system to be explained. It is our most important link to the world around us. Language is culture in motion. It is people interacting with people.

    Sandra Savignon (1983)
