“Neither we nor our students know which languages they may need to know during their lifetime; but if they have learned a language in school, it will be easier for them to learn whichever language they need to know. I tell my students they should learn another language because they never know when they will need it. I also hope they will come to share my fascination for human language. Not only is learning another language fascinating, it is also the only way people from different cultures can hope to understand each other. As such, it truly is our only hope for a more peaceful world.”
