Re: “Sprechen sie Deutsch? Am UALR, nein. UPDATE

I know that German is not the most popular foreign language among young students, but many people have already commented on why it is useful to learn it. It comes is handy for psychology students, philosophy students, even voice students and many more. But I think the most important reason why the German major program should not be eliminated is the following:

Only a teacher who is truly dedicated to his field can motivate students to do their best, and Dr. Susanne Wagner is really one of the most dedicated professors I have ever met. I studied a foreign language myself, in my case Spanish, at a University with a big Spanish program and lots of professors and lecturers. None of them ever

1) hosted class related events at their own home
2) got the Spanish ambassador to Germany to visit our university and give a talk
3) organized conferences like 'Think Transatlantic' with lectures and events that actually are of interest to students and not only faculty
4) got students to get involved in a Spanish club that offers events like the Stammtisch

Dr. Wagner has done all this although she wasn't required to. If she has to leave, the university will lose a professor who really cares and that is rare these days.
