"A different language is a different vision of the world." — Federico Fellini
Liberal Arts Culture
The study of a second language engages people in the exploration of cultural diversity: new worlds of people, customs, literature, and history suddenly become more understandable when they can be approached directly through the primary language. It is one of the cornerstones of a liberal arts and sciences education.
