World Languages

Whether you need to learn a new language for work, are planning a trip abroad, or want to improve your existing language skills, our language classes cover everything from basics to advanced topics.

World Languages at CCAE

With a friendly group setting and students from all backgrounds, our classes empower students to use languages confidently with plenty of opportunity for practice and participation.

We use the Common European Framework of Reference (CEFR) to guide our language programs. Language schools around the world use the CEFR to assess students and give direction to instructors. Learn more about our language levels.
