Happy Summer, Cougs!

IMG_5342editedAs the 2015-2016 school year comes to an end, the Washington State University Department of Foreign Languages and Cultures is proud to say we have continued to bring high-level language and cultural classes to campus. The DFLC continues to grow, and we celebrate the excellent work of our staff, faculty, and students this year. Some of these accomplishments led to the DFLC being featured in Alaska Airline’s magazine Alaska Beyond. The article focuses on learning foreign languages for business, a cause very important to our program. You can read more about it here.
