From: Professor Esther Allen, Department of Modern Languages and Comparative Literature
From Berber to Xhosa, CUNY students speak about 200 languages. Whether a given individual's language skills were gained from growing up in another country, family members, a workplace, a romantic partner, study or work abroad, or were learned in school, these skills are a valuable basis for high-level student research.
Over lunch, Prof. Adrian Izquierdo (English), along with Kiran Chand and other students, will discuss translation-related assignments that develop student language skills and help professors harness one of the most unique features of the Baruch classroom to advance learning for everyone. Whether you teach humanities, social sciences, or anything else, your students' multiple language skills are an asset and a great learning opportunity for the entire class.
