Which language should I pick?  Take a look at the languages IES offers and find out what interests you!

Spanish is our most requested language and it’s no wonder!  Next to English, Spanish is the most common language spoken in the US.
Mandarin is the third most common language spoken in the US and the most widely spoken language in the world.  Learn to speak Mandarin, and you can speak to over a billion people around the world!

India is projected to overtake China as the most populous nation in the world by 2030.   Hindi is the most widely spoken language in all of South Asia.  It is also the language of a long literary tradition, both in modern prose and poetry. 


French is a good base for learning other languages, especially Romance languages as well as English, since fifty per cent of current English vocabulary is derived from French.  French is also the official language of the United Nations, the European Union, UNESCO, NATO, the International Olympic Committee, the International Red Cross and international courts.  French is a language that opens up the world!


Arabic is the 5th most commonly spoken native language in the world, and there is a high demand and low supply of Arabic-speakers in the Western world.  The US government has designated Arabic as a language of strategic importance; in order to do business effectively, one must understand the language and culture of the people with whom one hopes to negotiate and conduct trade.

German, Japanese, and Russian

 Although not as popular, IES offers classes in a range of other languages as well.  Contact us if you are interested in learning more about bringing one of these languages to your school.
