Meet our staff

Aaron Middaugh- Hello! My name is Aaron Middaugh and I am currently a Master's student focusing on Second Language Acquisition. I completed my undergrad degrees here at K-State studying Spanish, Anthropology, and French. I come from a family line of teachers and I am delighted to be serving as the supervisor for the Kirmser Language Center. I enjoy reading, playing drums, and ukulele, learning languages, and going on long walks and bike rides.   Josie Brooks- Hi! My name is Josie and I'm an undergrad from Wichita, KS studying Communication Sciences & Disorders and French. Growing up, I always had a love of languages and traveling. My family hosted two foreign exchange students, one from Norway and the other from Brazil, so I experienced different cultures at home. In my freshman year of high school, I started learning French and have been studying it ever since. I am excited to work in the KLC, tutor French, and ignite students' love of langauges!

 Hi! My name is Julia and I'm an international student from Brazil studying Business Administration with a minor in Chinese. Ever since I was little, I loved learning langauges and, in my family, we all speak a mixture of Portuguese, German, and English, so conversations at my house are always quite interesting! In school, I learned Spanish and some French. During Covid, I decided to learn Korean and Chinese, and I absolutely fell in love with the cultures and the languages. I am very excited to work at the KLX and be able to help with tutoring for Chinese, German, and Spanish.  Sophie Hawks. Hallo! My name is Sophie Hawks and I am a senior at Kansas State majoring in German, Anthropology, and International Studies with a minor in Gender, Women, and Sexuality Studies. I have been learning German for nine years and I fell in love with the German Language and culture over that time. I am looking forward to tutoring in German at the KLC and sharing my passion for the language with other students here at K-State.

The Kirmser Language Center honors Jeune and Philip Kirmser, whose bequest made a renovation possible. With this renovation and the addition of new technology, the Kirmser Learning Center is now an attractive, comfortable, and flexible space that serves a variety of functions, including a meeting space for graduate students. In addition to its use by individual students for classes, faculty employ the Center and its new technological capabilities for oral proficiency assessment, film screening, and to connect students with native speaking peers around the world.
