Stand out from the crowd, take a less commonly taught language!
- Smaller classes
- Differentiate your resume
- Unique learning opportunities
- Potential scholarships
You gain linguistic knowledge that creates the unique opportunity to travel to exciting/uncommon locales. You build linguistic knowledge/vocabulary/speaking abilities from the ground up; no prior experience necessary or expected. You are eligible for unique and oftentimes uncontested scholarships, internships, and other work opportunities on account of the dearth of speakers available.
