The International Language School

The International Language School at SDFAS is designed to give students of all ages and various levels the opportunity to become acquainted with another language and its culture. We offer a specific language to choose from for native and non-native speakers, such as French, Chinese, German, Italian and Spanish.

For the French language two groups are offered: one for native French speakers and one for non-French speakers. The class for native speakers will focus on improving oral and written skills. For those learning French as a foreign language, oral and conversational skills will be emphasized.

The instructor/student ratio is very small, normally 1:8.

Learning another language opens doors to more opportunities and gives young students the advantage of learning or improving another language before high school.

For all classes instructors may vary.

Adults all levels available please inquire.

Price includes registration ($50/2h) and material fee ($50). $50 cancelation fee. Registration deadline Sept. 15th 2016.

You have the option to pay each session in 2 installments if needed.
