Whether you want to conduct international business, discover your family heritage, explore new cultures or travel the world, the ability to communicate in another language enhances your experience and gives you the confidence you need to accomplish your goals. In addition, learning another language has been shown to help improve your decision-making ability, enhance your creativity, boost brain function and more.
We offer online and face-to-face language courses that emphasize practical conversation skills in French, Spanish, Chinese, Dutch, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese and American Sign Language. To learn more about how our face-to-face classes have been impacted by our response to COVID-19, please click here. We also offer 100% online courses in several languages in reading and writing.
Our online conversational language classes offer you a real-time virtual classroom where you can see and interact with your teacher and classmates. Each week, you login at a set time to your virtual classroom using our easy-to-use learning management platform, Canvas. Just like in a classroom, you do individual, pair and group work, ask questions and receive verbal feedback from your instructor. Outside of class, you can access handouts and other materials online at your own pace and rhythm.
We offer courses from introductory to advanced. Not sure which level is right for you? Read our overview of course language levels to find the level that suits your experience and skills.
