The CLS welcomes language learners to a virtual and physical space devoted to the study of languages. We provide resources for students of languages, as well as courses for nonnative speakers of English through our English Language Program. For undergraduates enrolled in a language course, we offer peer tutoring in the target language. For Yale College students, as well as graduate and professional school students, we offer specialized language programs, including the Directed Independent Language Study (DILS) and the Fields program, for advanced language study in a discipline. For the professional study of languages, we offer Medical Spanish, Medical Chinese, and Portuguese for Special Purposes. For graduate student teachers, we offer the Certificate in Second Language Acquisition. All language learners at Yale have access to CLS facilities, including its study rooms and multimedia labs.
