While attending MNSU, Mankato I have taken courses in two languages, Spanish and American Sign Language. Having a background in both of these languages has helped me in many ways, such as being accepted into the TRIMP field school and being able to understand people who are deaf, which I seem to encounter more now that I know basic ASL. I hope to continue to learn more and become more fluent in both of these languages in my last couple of years in college and beyond.
