We provide instruction in languages such as Akan (Twi), Arabic, Hebrew, Hindi, Persian, Swahili, Turkish and Urdu using the latest methodologies and technologies of heritage and second language learning. In addition, we offer introductory and specialized courses taught in English on a broad spectrum of topics, including literature, folklore and translation.
