Language Studies Institute

A Different Kind of Language School

Whether you plan to learn a foreign language for an upcoming vacation, need to communicate effectively with business colleagues or just want to feel more a part of the international community of the Bay Area, we have a language solution for you. We offer regularly scheduled ten-week courses at all levels. Travel-specific courses give you the basic language skills you need to get around comfortably. Courses for Professionals are designed around the specialized language needs of health care and law enforcement professionals. Additionally, we can create an intensive-learning class for your business, then teach it right at your site.

Language Studies Institute provides you with a new, dynamic way to quickly gain and implement language skills, with the flexibility to choose the type of course that works best for you. Whether you choose a group class or a private course, you'll learn from a teacher who's a qualified native speaker. Our textbooks and other materials have been carefully selected for their authenticity and relevance to your needs. Our teachers also have access to an extensive library of additional cultural and linguistic learning materials that will quickly enable you to use your new skills in practical situations.

Another philosophy that sets us apart is our belief that learning about culture is an essential part of learning a language. Understanding a country's customs and culture is necessary to be able to communicate well.
