      French

From Paris to Tahiti, from Quebec, Canada to New Orleans and the Caribbean, we are learning the language that circles the globe - French. In addition to that most romantic of languages, we celebrate the food and fashion, the art and music, the achievements and history of the world's fifth largest economy and fourth largest exporter, France. Whether you want to fulfill language requirements for an associate's or bachelor's degree, explore business or professional applications, prepare for travel or simply indulge a fascination with France and French, from beginning (French 121) to advanced levels (French 122 and 123), SCC has a French program to help you achieve your goals.

      Spanish

Spanish is widely used in the United States. By taking Spanish at SCC, you will not only learn a beautiful language, but you will be introduced to the culture of the Spanish-speaking world. Think of all the new friends you can make! We offer two full years of Spanish, which is fully transferable and will satisfy your foreign language requirement at all Washington public colleges. The second-year Spanish courses count as a "D" course, or diversity requirement. Native and near-native speakers should enroll in the 200-level classes. If you have studied Spanish previous to attending SCC, talk to us about where you should begin in our curriculum.
