Thank you everyone for a
College Abroad & Bilingual Forum
of the Greater Philadelphia !
October 6th 2019
with our co-sponsor :
Harriton High School
600 N Ithan Ave, Bryn Mawr, PA 19010
The gift that keeps on giving for yourself and for the society.
Languages are doors that lead to new worlds which are entirely different from our own. Learning a foreign language does not only mean learning how to speak, write and read, but it is also learning to understand and comprehend different cultures, traditions and ideologies. We say that every human being is an island. Languages might just be the tool we need to build bridges between these islands.
Like future employers, graduate school admissions boards look very highly on study abroad experiences. Students that study abroad display diversity and show that they aren’t afraid to seek out new challenges or put themselves in difficult situations.
Most importantly, students who have studied abroad show just how committed they are to their education. Graduate schools regularly look for candidates who will bring a unique aspect to their university. Students who have studied abroad have shown that they have the curiosity and educational acumen to be a leader in graduate school.
In order to emphasize the importance of learning new languages,
we are happy to organize the bilingual forum on October 6th.
