Voices from Global Languages

Members of the Class of 2020 on their language studies

"The excellence these students have demonstrated, even in the face of new challenges, is a testament to their dedication to and enthusiasm for learning global languages and cultures." 

— Professor Emma J. Teng, Global Languages Director


The Global Languages awards aim to highlight and celebrate the passion and devotion our students invest in language and cultural education at MIT.

Joyce Roberge, Global Languages' Academic Administrator, said, "Whether it is to get to closer to their own heritage or to make connections with new people and cultures through travel and work experiences, it is very gratifying to see so many students living out the mission and values of Global Languages and how they will continue to do so for years to come."
