"When I moved to the Charlotte area two years ago to teach English, I encountered
many ELL and ESL students, and I felt a strong desire to communicate fluently with
them. What stood out at Queens was the study abroad ratings, focus on language immersion...
I thought it was a perfect fit."
Queens' chapter of Sigma Delta Pi allows you to connect with other equally-passionate
students over the love for the Spanish language.
"Queens provided me with the flexibility to study abroad to master my language skills.
My decision to study the Spanish language has served me in every job I have had. Spanish
is not simply something to study, but a skill that will serve those who develop it
for the rest of their lives."
