Language Learning and the Liberal Arts
Dr. Kelly is the co-director of Colgate's Center for Language and Brain
(CLB) which focuses on, among other things, issues involved in foreign language instruction and learning. Check out the video below to learn how the CLB promotes the psychological and social benefits of learning a foreign language at Colgate.
