Your World Language Journey with Mizzou Academy

Welcome! We are so happy you have decided to embark on or continue your world language learning journey with Mizzou Academy.  There are over 7,000 languages spoken globally. This means, you have almost endless potential to learn new languages and make new connections. We’ve found the more you learn about languages, culture, and the world, the distance between people and place becomes smaller.  Learning another language is far more than gaining a few new phrases.  A world language learner is someone who is studying a language beyond their home language. Truly studying language means learning about both communication and culture.  As you learn new languages, you will be able to communicate with more people, build bridges, understand nuance in culture and literature, and be a more mobile global citizen.Global citizenship is the idea that all human beings are interconnected as members of a world community who share space, experience, and common bonds. At Mizzou Academy, we have students from over 100 different countries of origin. We commend you on your interest in world languages,  and we would be thrilled to count you among our global learning community.
