Why learn languages? You'll develop the skills and emotional capability to succeed and excel in any job, profession or passion you choose to follow. When first learning a new language, you learn to listen closely in order to understand and to speak deliberately to express your thoughts. You develop patience, camaraderie and solidarity and become a team player with those learning with you.
These learning conditions hone the traits of humility and patience and make multilingual speakers excellent at communicating and negotiating with compassion and persistence. These human traits are skills that employers want. At CLS, we know they are part of language learning! Still not convinced? Our students rave about taking language classes at Brown.

What about the faculty?
Language faculty are amazing. Classes are small, usually fewer than 20 students! You'll get a chance to know your faculty and they will know you. Need a recommendation letter? They are the best faculty to ask!
