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.
Most FLI courses are held in the Jim D. Morris Center in downtown Springfield. To get more details, visit the institute's website or call 417-836-5497.
