Previous LACIS outreach assistant Karl Whitemarsh has been highlighted by the Language Institute for being a distinguished Portuguese Alum! Karl was featured on the LACIS blog last year when he was in Brazil for the World Cup completing an internship assisting at the Secretaria Municipal da Copa do Mundo da FIFA 2014 (Municipal World Cup Secretariat). Head over to the Language Institute’s page to read about what Karl’s been up to since his time interning in Brazil, and how Portuguese and Spanish have played a central role in his life. While you’re there, make sure to check out how other Alumni have been using the language skills they developed at UW after graduation!

Great work, Karl!
