The Language Center
The Language Center is for students who wish to engage in the study of languages and cultures. The Language Center is therefore an on campus community of students learning, communicating, and writing in at least one modern language other than English. The Language Center is run by the Office of Student Affairs at Thames.

What Does the Language Center Do?
While adding a second or a third language to their repertoire of linguistic skills, students engaged in the Language Center will learn international values, perspectives, and cross-cultural awareness, the nature of languages being inextricably rooted in the culture and history of their countries of origin. Students immersed in the Language Center will be in the process of becoming global citizens, capable of a wide range of thought and expression. To further this immersion, students will get the opportunity to visit the country of origin of one of the languages taught at Thames, with the Language Center organizing trips to France!
Areas of Focus:
The Language Center offers courses in French in collaboration with Alliance Française of Kathmandu, and courses in Chinese, in collaboration with the Confucius Institute.
