6. How could the CWU Foreign Language program better prepare you for your career/practice?


Make study abroad experiences mandatory for all majors

-Targeted career workshops for FL majors.
-Class visits from professionals in the field, perhaps even CWU alumni.

-More opportunities for conversational settings.
-More teachings on local slang/modismos.

Discussed/prepared me more for the JLPT. Offered a course in studying for the Test, Test materials and review etc. What I learned about this test I learned from my time ABROAD.

My most valuable experiences came from studying in Mexico. It would ahve been nice if communication between the FL dept & Study abroad had been better.

All of my literature classes were virtually useless. I never had any intention of entering poetry/arts and really just needed practical knowledge to be better at conversation, etc.



More German in general.

More on interpretation (I failed the state test for medical interpreters... maybe next time)!

What prepared me was the having the opportunity to live abroad in Chile and Spain through the study abroad program at CWU. I would not have had the same amount of language skills from solely studying at CWU.

More conversational use opportunities i.e. conversation buddy, more time in class

I would have liked to have been able to have taken more than one linguistics class. Dr. Bransdorfer did a phenomenal job in the ONE class offered in this area. Also, i would have liked more conversational classes about current events.

Especially in studying Japanese, there were unfortunately very few opportunities to speak the language in a situation where a knowledgeable speaker could listen and correct my usage -- relying entirely on conversation partners is useful for developing confidence in the language, but native speakers are generally not very reliable for providing consistent and useful feedback.

I could have benefited from more written language practice.

-Please note that I was a transfer student and started at Central in upper division courses. My lack of skills in written language does not reflect the instruction courses of the preliminary Russian language courses at CWU.



Not much better

I'd like to see the department doing more community outreach. There is a huge Hispanic speaking population in the Kittitas and Yakima valleys. They are untapped resources that could lead to incredible interagency cooperation.
