Foreign Language

The many languages offered by this department are designed to help students appreciate the cultural and ethnic diversity found in the city of Glendale and in our country. Many of the languages are taught using the immersion technique. This technique is designed to help students better understand the language and the culture in which it is based. We hope that our students will see our program as an exciting path to discovery as they study other languages and cultures. Ultimately, our goal is for students to experience our languages not as foreign, but as their own.

Classes are offered in the following disciplines:
