"IMMERSION! I would encourage them [African-Americans] to find an opportunity to immerse themselves in the language - mission trips, college exchange programs, international work programs, peace corps, even local churches or organizations where the target language is used. I would encourage them by showing them how much more marketable they could be with a second language under their belt." Brenee McDole, CA
"Tenacity is key. A student should not let money be an object when it comes to studying abroad, which is a wonderful & much needed experience. Do the research on optional language schools & Scholarships, Scholarships, Scholarships! I'm a witness that the money is out there, but you must seek it out & not be discouraged when you do not get it the first time. Try again."
