The Foreign Language Department of the Foothill College Language Arts Division is dedicated to developing the language and critical thinking skills necessary for students to succeed in their academic classes and in the workplace; fostering global understanding and an appreciation for diverse cultures; and promoting in students a deeper understanding of themselves and others through literature.
If you are planning to transfer, you need to complete level 2 (second quarter) of a language other than English. From that point, enhance your career options by taking more advanced courses and getting a degree in the language.
Fill out a Foreign Language Placement Form and bring it with you to a counseling appointment for placement determination. Or, you can fax this form to (650) 949-6125 and your placement determination will be e-mailed to you at the e-mail address you provide on the form.
Students with some prior knowledge of Japanese or Spanish can get credit by exam for one quarter of the language.
