The welcome page displays an image with five speech bubbles containing text.
The bubbles read, "Are you interested in the languages of the world? Are you interested in a particular language spoken thousands of miles away, or next door, or within our own family? Would you like to keep studying, in college, a language that you began to learn in school - or to start learning an entirely new one? Is a language other than English part of your cultural heritage? Do you wish to explore it further and improve your command of it, in a manner that resonates with your personal experience?"
