Global Language Programs

DCCCD understands that providing students the opportunity to become proficient in a second or a third language prepares the student to become a global citizen, and upgrade his/her job skills. Having multiple language proficiency is the mark of an educated person — a citizen of the world who has wide horizons of opportunity, a broad outlook on the different cultures of the world, and a depth of understanding about human communication and interaction.

DCCCD students may select courses from 14 different languages: Arabic, Chinese, ESL, French, German, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian or Spanish.

These languages are delivered in a variety of ways: classroom instruction, telecourse, interactive TV, or Internet. Language studies are supported by computerized language labs during the day and evening.
