language studies

You can begin or continue foreign language studies in an array of courses and programs. Our regular offerings include Spanish, French, Russian, German, Japanese, American Sign Language, and Chinese. In addition, Arabic, Basque, Irish Gaelic, Latin, and ancient Greek are taught from time to time. In full-time programs, both stateside and abroad, you can learn foreign languages through immersion in the cultures of the peoples who speak them. Common destinations include Argentina, Costa Rica, Japan, China, France, Italy, Greece, Turkey, and Egypt. In addition to foreign languages, Evergreen offers frequent opportunities in linguistics.
