Nathan: What has your experience with languages in Oberlin been?
Alex: I’ve taken Arabic and French class. I enjoyed them both. They were both fast paced enough to get me equipped to deal with the language outside the class room.
Nathan: Any thoughts for improvement?
Alex: I would like to have more chances for speaking and listening inside the class room. We have a lot of chances outside but I think more inside the classroom would have helped.
Nathan: How do you plan use your languages outside of Oberlin?
Alex: For traveling and with family.
Nathan: What is your favorite foreign expression?
Alex: Mashallah, which is an expression of joy and appreciation.
