Language Partner Program

The CCSF Language Partner Program is an exchange program between International students and Foreign Language students.  Currently, only French, Italian and Spanish are offered, but we hope to add Chinese (Mandarin) in Spring 2017.  Here’s how it works:

  • Where:  The Language Center, which is located in R403 (Rosenberg Library, Ocean Campus).
  • Who:  Students interested in participating in the program would partner with a student who is a native speaker of the language you are studying. A student then practices with a native speaker while at the same time helping him/her to practice English.  Sessions will be approximately half and half foreign language/English conversation.  
  • How:  In order to participate you will need to activate you CCSF Google mail account.  If you haven't already done so, click here and follow the instructions.  

Through your CCSF Google mail account you will be able to access the Language Partner Program site.  Click here to go to the Language Partner home page, then follow the instructions to make an appointment.  

 

Placement and Prerequisites

Introductory courses (1, or 1A series) and conversation courses (10 series) have no prerequisites.  Other courses require a placement test and filing a simple form.  A coordinator will help students file this form quickly and easily.  Click here for more information.  For specific languages, click on the links below:
