Kids Language Classes

Little Linguals – Designed for children aged 8-12, the Little Lingual classes in Spanish, French, Italian, and Chinese are geared to get an early start on language learning while helping children enjoy and appreciate a different culture. This is the best time for them to learn a foreign language. Our exciting “Little Lingual” classes meet once a week during the afternoon for one hour.

Class content includes Alphabet, Songs, Games, Practical Words and Phrases, and Basic Dialogs. Ages 16 and above can join our regularly scheduled adult classes. Private lessons are always an option for any age.

Private Lessons

Some people prefer to take private lessons instead of joining a scheduled class, or take private lessons to occasionally augment their classes. The advantages of private lessons are that the sessions are tailored to the specific needs of the students and they can be useful if the student’s language knowledge is uneven, if a more intensified study program is needed, if scheduling or privacy is a concern, or if a student’s age requires private instruction & custom curriculum.

With our large staff of native speaking teachers we can schedule private lessons in most languages. We sell our private lessons in packages of eight 80-minute sessions unless you are enrolled in a class and then they can be scheduled individually.

Corporate Language Classes

In today’s competitive global marketplace, greater job success often depends on foreign language skills and knowledge of other cultures. The ability to overcome cultural barriers within international corporations, meet foreign partners and clients on their own turf, and move fluidly between cultures is in demand. A multilingual resume is no longer a luxury but a career requirement.

Our customized corporate training programs focus on coaching professionals: from assistant personnel exposed to international calls and foreign correspondence to the highest corporate executive required to negotiate, evaluate and represent a corporate agenda on an international platform. Our programs consist of tailor-made, industry-specific packages that train students in not only the foreign language but also related communication skills and job-specific terminology.

corporate language learning classes

We follow the principle that the role of successful language training is to increase the student’s overall communication skills while operating in a foreign language or while dealing with foreign partners. The unique success of our language and communication training is based on our philosophy that language learning is an integral part of focused communication development and job specialization.

Our training concept combines the highest academic standards with business-savvy communication skills such as intercultural business relations and targeted job specialization.

This in my second semester with Monica and I'm planning to continue with her classes!

This review is for the Beginner Tagalog classes at OC Lingual Institute. I wanted to study Tagalog to learn my native language. Both my parents are from the Philippines, and my mom speaks fluently, but we never spoke Tagalog at home, so I never picked it up. I was searching for local, Beginner Tagalog courses in Orange County (which was quite difficult to find), and found courses through the OC Lingual Institute. So far, I have taken 5 classes with a small cohort of 3 students, and our wonderful instructor, Kathryn. For anyone looking to learn Tagalog from scratch, Kathryn has been an amazing instructor. For reference, we practice through required textbooks/workbooks, which offer vocabulary word banks and grammatical structures. Kathryn walks us through the proper way to speak in Tagalog, teaches us pronunciation, and takes the time to answer our questions. My friend (who's also taking the course) and I are highly interested in continuing to higher level courses. No matter which institution/platform you decide to learn language, your ability to learn more slowly/quickly is highly dependent on your effort. Since the COVID-19 pandemic/the start of my new work schedule, the online courses have been extremely convenient/easy to learn from. I recommend the OC Lingual Institute to anyone looking to learn Tagalog in Orange County. Thank you, Jessica and Kathryn, for making the process to enroll and to learn Tagalog very smooth/fun!

This is such a great place to learn french. I decided to take french at the beginning of March 2020 and have learned so much so far. I started at Beginner II because I knew some french prior to coming to the institute. What I love most about the Institute is that the class is so small. There were about 4 other classmates in my class. (I am used to learning a language in a high school or college class of around 30+ people which is a tough learning environment for me.) Everyone was so sweet and made the class fun. I also had the BEST instructor... Laeticia!!!!! She is SO kind, funny, understanding, and extremely helpful. She pushed our class to practice and speak with one another. We also focused on reading/prononciation and translating. At times it was tough but it is so essential! Thank you Laeticia! 10/10 would recommend coming to this institute if you are looking to learn a new language or improve it! Just know - it doesn't come easy and you will have to "study" and do "homework" each week so you keep up with the class.
