Two missionaries walk past a large map of the world in a hallway at the Missionary Training Center in Provo, Utah, Thursday Jan. 31, 2008.

Did you serve a foreign language-speaking mission for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints?

During the 1960s and 1970s, foreign-speaking missionaries gathered at the Language Training Mission in Provo, which included dormitories and classrooms. They learned Spanish, Portuguese and German.

This month marks 50 years since two-month language training began.
