Knowledge of a foreign language is intrinsic to a sound education in the liberal arts. Language not only defines cultural identity; it constitutes the basis of the literary and philosophical heritage that is at the heart of advanced learning in the humanities. Stepping into another language enriches the imagination by offering fresh insights, perspectives that challenge unexamined habits of mind, and the simple adventure of gaining access to another way of life and thought.
