I’m not sure whether I learned more by studying at universities in the United States or by living and working in Europe. Earning a Ph.D. in French Language and Literature at Florida State University and an undergraduate degree in English at Shepherd College taught me a lot about those subjects, as well as how to teach others to acquire proficiency in them, but the education I received from working in private language schools in Germany and Italy, and studying in Paris, while traveling around those countries, absorbing their sights and sounds and culture, may have been even more important in making me the person I am. Two things I love very much are foreign languages and the piano, and they have a lot in common. They both involve human communication, people sharing ideas and emotions with one another. And they’re both beautiful. For me, the sounds of French, Italian, Spanish – even German – possess something mysterious and magical that goes far beyond the basic transmission of meaning.
