Communication & Languages

"To learn a language is to have one more window from which to look at the world." – Chinese proverb

What would learning a second or foreign language mean to you?

  • Career enhancement
  • Travel to other countries
  • Connecting with speakers of other languages
  • Engaging with other cultures
  • Improved cognitive function

Wake Tech has a long history of offering a variety of language-learning options. Whether you are just starting your language journey or an advanced learner looking for a new challenge, we can help you reach your goals. 

Looking for a private class for your group? We can tailor courses to meet the unique needs of your business, church, civic or social group.

The classes are all non-credit and will not transfer to meet high school or college foreign language requirements. However, many of the classes do provide Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for teachers and will count as academic credit for those on J1 visas.
