Language Learning for Life

It’s that time of year again! Last year language students from colleges and universities around the country submitted fun and meaningful videos to Vista Higher Learning’s Language Learning for Life video contest.

Six lucky students won $500 to put toward things like study abroad opportunities and textbooks. Students, instructors, and the Vista team enjoyed the contest so much that we are holding it again this year! We will once again ask your students to make a video that demonstrates how they think language study will benefit their local community or the wider global community.

For contest details, and to watch last year’s winning videos, visit

Best regards,
The Vista Higher Learning Team
