There are many reasons to learn a foreign language, such as facilitating international travel, expanding your job skills, making friends from other countries and increasing global understanding.
While learning a new language is a lot of work, it is no doubt beneficial and rewarding.
If you want to learn a new language for personal or professional development, look no further than the Foreign Language Institute (FLI) at Missouri State University.
Established in 2012, the institute offers a variety of languages to a diverse group of learners, from college students to business professionals to children and more.
FLI Coordinator Kelly Schlinder shares about the FLI and its offerings.
