Language Exchange Program
In addition to language classes on campus (Chinese, French, Latin, and Spanish), our department enjoys the use of a distance learning classroom on campus for the Language Exchange Program. Our faculty teaches Chinese to Emory & Henry students and external students in the Language Exchange Program. Emory & Henry foreign language students taking Arabic, German, Russian, etc., receive instruction from non-Emory & Henry faculty through the Language Exchange Program in this space.
Would you like to spend a formative semester in France or Spain? Would you like to visit Argentina, China, Cuba, Guatemala, or Mexico with an Emory & Henry instructor? Now it is possible! Study trips are open to all students. If you major in French or Spanish Language and Culture Studies, you will be encouraged to study abroad during your junior year. For more info, you can see our Study Abroad page.
Want a credential to show future employers you have the language skills to make you more marketable? The Global Seal of Biliteracy may be just what you’re looking for! The Certificate is available at three levels of proficiency, intermediate-mid, advanced-low, and advanced-high. If you’re interested in learning more, check out our Biliteracy Certificate page.
The Spanish program is committed to serving the Hispanic community of the area. The upper-level Spanish courses include a service-learning component in which students are able to develop relationships with Hispanic native speakers while improving their foreign language skills.
