Welcome to MSU Community Language School!

The Community Language School offers a variety of programs for children and youth. During spring and fall semesters, we offer weekly classes for preschoolers (ages 3-6), children (ages 6-9), pre-teens (10-12), teens (ages 13+) and adults (18+).

In the summer, we offer week-long day-camps on campus. Our enrichment programs at area elementary schools introduce children to different cultures and their languages. 

We also conduct monthly culture events. These events introduce children to cultures around the world. Our culture events are open to the general public and are free of cost. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we will be offering online classes and events in lieu of our face-to-face programs. Find out more about MSU’s new guidelines and policies for remote instruction here

All ages and experience levels welcome!


Our face-to-face programs for children and adults are designed to provide a fun and educational learning environment that focuses on interactions in the target language. It will sensitize children to language learning and help them acquire an awareness and appreciation of other cultures. Teenagers and adults will enhance their understanding of the native language, and hopefully motivate them to pursue language study further in life.
