I applied to the CLS program for Summer 2016!! I am very excited about it. CLS stands for Critical language scholarship. It’s an all-expenses paid eight-week trip to a country to study a critical language. They offer a lot of “off-chart” languages like Hindi and Bengali and Bahasa Indonesia and Turkish. I was tempted by some of these, but…
Dad: “Make sure you consider your safety.”
Mom: “Make sure you consider how learning any of those languages will help you in your future career.”
So in the end, I went with Korean. Korea is safe, and I can see myself using it in my job. The next blog post has the personal statement I wrote. I can’t believe how many of these I’ve written.
Anyway, I hope I get it!!! 😀 😀 😀
