Trent Centre for Language and Linguistics
Learn a new language. Prepare for the future. Start right here.
Now is the time to complement and augment your degree – whether you’re planning for your first year of study or your final year.
Through the Trent Centre for Language and Linguistics, you can learn a new language (from scratch!), build on what you already know, or delve into the scientific study of language with linguistics.
And as you learn, you’ll be building your résumé, preparing for the future, and all the while opening yourself up to the new perspectives and possibilities that come being able to communicate with more people in more places, at home and around the world. Without setting foot off campus (but opportunities to do so exist!), you will be exposed to new cultures as you immerse yourself in language learning.
Choose to learn American Sign Language (ASL), Arabic, French, German, Italian, Mandarin Chinese, Russian or Spanish. Learn an Indigenous language – Mohawk or Nishnaabemowin – through our cooperation with the Indigenous Studies department. Explore the ancient world by taking a course in Latin or ancient Greek. Or pursue the Option in Languages or the Option in Linguistics, to complement your major(s). These Option will provide you with an introduction to linguistics and a chance to focus on one or more languages.
