Welcome to Languages at Laurier Brantford!


The world’s cultural and linguistic landscape is becoming increasingly accessible and diverse. Shared means of travel, information and communication ease the interaction with more peoples and cultures.  The global is becoming more local. The encounter with other cultures and languages allows us to gain new perspectives on the world and broaden our horizons.

Learning another language helps students expand their ‘mental landscape,’ help overcome language barriers, become more aware of cultural diversity. It contributes to the students’ intercultural understanding of international relations; it allows them to gain insight into different geo-cultural perspectives, and consequently the ability to perform at a broader international level.
