The humanities department offers beginning and intermediate-level classes in many languages such as American Sign Language, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish.
American Sign Language, French, German, Hebrew, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, and Spanish are available in a four-semester sequence, therefore allowing transfer students to fulfill their foreign language requirement here at TMCC.
While TMCC does not offer advanced studies in foreign languages, the introductory and intermediate classes are a great way to learn about the principles of the individual languages, about the structure of language in general, and about the cultures that use the language we study.
Exposure to a language other than English allows us to see English from a new perspective and truly opens our eyes to the invigorating variety of cultures, customs, and values around us and in the world at large.
