Can anyone learn a language in 5 minutes?  NO!  But you could convince your roommate YOU DID in 2 minutes. 

 

But in all seriousness, Join ISSS for our very fun and approachable event entitled Taste of Language.  Learn from fluent speakers of over ten (10) languages how to say simple greetings and phrases such as Hello, How are you? Could you pass the ketchup!  Put down the Squirrel!
