Foreign Language Assistants

 For over a decade the Departments of Modern Languages & Literatures and Spanish at Holy Cross has hosted a small group of Foreign Language Assitants from nine different countries. These teachers not only help our students master another language but, more importantly, give them insight into other cultures. An interaction of this nature requires language learners to analyze their own culture critically through the eyes of a young person raised outside of the United States. Consequently, students learn as much about life as they do about language.
