Language Study at Graduate School USA

Graduate School USA offers classes in over a dozen foreign languages and American Sign Language, with courses available by contract to agencies and organizations and in our DC classrooms through Evening and Weekend Programs.

Our instructors, all native speakers or highly skilled users of the languages they teach, bring successful interactive techniques to the classroom to help students understand, speak, read, and write the target languages while gaining understanding of the cultures from which the languages come. We work with travelers, entrepreneurs, diplomats, members of Congress, public library employees, and more, offering classes in a range of proficiency levels. In addition to general language and conversational skills, our customized training can address specialized vocabulary and communication needs.

We have customized training for a range of organizations, including:

The District of Columbia Public Library. Graduate School USA designed and delivered a curriculum for library workers who interact with the Spanish-speaking public by phone and in person. Lessons put the language in a job-related context. By the end of each thirty-hour session participants are able to conduct simple conversations, answer questions about library services, ask clarifying questions, and respond to requests in Spanish. DC Public Library employees who have taken the course report increased comprehension and ability to make themselves understood when using Spanish to assist library customers

The American Red Cross. For the Red Cross, we customized French, Spanish, and Arabic language courses that focus on helping first responders and aid workers communicate better in a variety of situations with the people they serve.
