Join ALTEC in our engaging language classes! Evening classes are perfect for busy adults with a desire to learn new languages and cultures. As these classes are non-credit with no tests, our students are highly motivated to learn the language for use in their professions, social life and travels. Students enrolled in ALTEC language classes also have access to a large collection of foreign language materials at The HIVE, located in Hellems 159.

Classes run for 10 weeks beginning Jan. 28 and meet once a week for two hours. Community members can register for these classes at a rate of $200 per class. Current CU faculty, staff and graduate students receive a 50 percent discount. Payments can be made by credit card, cash or check. Interdepartmental invoices are also accepted, should a department wish to sponsor tuition.

Classes fill up quickly, so register today. Learn more on the ALTEC language classes page.

Directed Independent Language Study

With smaller class sizes and more individualized attention from the instructor, the Directed Independent Language Study (DILS) program makes possible the study of less commonly taught languages. This spring, ALTEC will offer 3-credit-hour classes in Danish, Indonesian and Swedish and non-credit courses in Thai and Tibetan.

University staff can use their tuition benefit to register online in MyCUInfo for the Danish, Indonesian and Swedish courses. Staff may take the Thai and Tibetan classes for free by emailing
