Owlingua: FAU's one stop for world languagesTM


A language can be learned at any age, but the sooner we learn one, the more we get to enjoy it.

The Department of Languages, Linguistics, and Comparative Literature (LLCL) is offering non-credit continuing education classes focused on Language and Culture. Whether you are a professional wanting to further your skills in a foreign language, are looking to fulfill a linguistic or cultural interest, or are simply trying to connect with others, feel free to join our community.

We offer language classes in American Sign Language, Arabic, French, Modern Greek, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish at a price that is affordable.

English courses are offered by the Intensive English Institute.
