Learning Where the Language is Spoken - DLS Partner Schools

There is no place like Shanghai to polish your Chinese pronunciation or a Provencal town to delve into French idioms. Need a refresher course in Brazilian-Portuguese, how about an immersion program in Pernambuco? Want to take your Maghrebi Arabic to the next level, spend time learning the language in Rabat. Whether you are living in a different region of the world and want to take language classes locally or you dream of language immersion abroad, we have an option for you. With DLS’ Partner Schools program, there is no limit to the possibilities.
