Equip yourself to communicate around the world. We have courses from French to Italian, German to Chinese. Our skilled instructors will even help you unlock Hebrew, the ancient language of biblical times.

You’ll learn the basics and beyond, and take away foreign language fun facts like:

  • The shape of Chinese characters is inspired by the physical appearance and meaning of the word.
  • Rindfleischetikettierungsüberwachungsaufgabenübertragungsgesetz, the longest German word, means “the law concerning cattle marking and labeling of beef.”
  • The ancient language of Hebrew is written from right to left because it’s easier to chisel from right to left than from left to right.
  • French, the language of love, is spoken on every continent.
  • More than 400 million people speak Spanish and online use has risen by an incredible 800%. It’s the world’s second-most spoken language (behind Chinese).
