No global perspective is complete without the ability to communicate effectively in a cross-cultural environment. Whether you are asking for directions or conveying a business idea to a client abroad, communicating in the native tongue can give you a decided advantage.
For career advancement or personal pleasure, join the more than 2,500 students who have taken advantage of the Chazen Language Program. Begin learning the sounds of a new language, or brush up on and practice a language that you have studied previously.
The Chazen Language Program offers 8-week courses with a focus on communication through conversation. The program offers students an intimate group setting, concentrating primarily on learning through the spoken word. Oral skills precede reading and writing, with a limited focus on grammar.
Classes are typically offered in Arabic, Business English, Chinese, French, German, Hindi, Japanese, Portuguese, and Spanish at beginning, intermediate, and advanced levels. Classes in additional languages can be offered if there is sufficient interest. At the advanced language levels, classes emphasize business terminology.
