Kenan Professor of French John Rassias, developer of the Rassias Method of intensive language instruction, has taught generations of teachers how to capture the minds and spirits of young students and get them interested in studying a new language. Speaking with VPR’s Jane Lindholm on Vermont Edition, he said learning another language gives people two different ways to look at things. And that makes a real difference in how we look at ourselves and at other people.

Listen to the program, broadcast on Vermont Public Radio on 11/17/10.
