Foreign Language

Learning foreign languages is something that can give you richer cultural insights and also help improve your memory, and this is exactly what you will be doing in the Foreign Language program. The exact number and kinds of languages you can learn varies per university. However, the ones most commonly taught are French, Spanish, Italian, German, Chinese, Japanese, Arabic, Greek, Russian and Portuguese. With each language, you will start at the beginner’s level then move on to intermediate and advanced, learning the proper pronunciation, grammar and sentence construction. Aside from this, you will also learn the literature of each country, and also explore its history and cultural background. Some universities even include tours with these to help students have a better grasp of various cultures while also practicing what they learned.
