What’s happening

Ever wondered what springtime in Paris is like? The answer is confusing if you don’t speak a word of French. Lake Tahoe Community College can get travelers started with courses in five different languages this winter including French, German, Japanese, Spanish and Polish. Beginning, intermediate, and high levels are offered along with courses that are tailored to fit your life and career.

Medical professionals can personalize a project for their workplace in Spanish for the Medical Professional. Students will learn to understand their patients and build practical Spanish communication skills. And the course is provider approved for the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider Number 959, for five contact hours. Improve your customer service by learning a new language.

Elementary Spanish for the Professions provides practical essentials of conversing in Spanish for persons interested in tourism. It emphasizes survival verbal skills and practical vocabulary like greetings, ordering a meal, airport terminology, time, money and more.

In Conversational Japanese students will be introduced to the Japanese reading and writing systems as well as culture and history. Learn about a country and its people through their language this fall at LTCC. Conversational Italian is returning to the schedule this spring.
