Language Schools
This section covers language schools in the United States and throughout the world. Here in the United States, there are basically three options to learn a language in a school setting: commercial schools, continuing education courses offered by colleges and private tutoring.  Americans also can travel to another country to learn a language at a school in the country where they speak the language.

If you can't find a school or tutor, try our Language resources page where we list web-based language courses and products.  If you are just a tourist or traveler and want to learn a few phrases, see our World Links Language section.  If you are not sure of the language(s) spoken in the country or city you are visiting, select the country or city in our World Links Places or Cities section.  We show the languages spoken on those pages.
