Meet our staff

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 Bond, French Tutor

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.
