We firmly believe that learning a new language is an enriching, life-long voyage. Language defines and shapes how we understand the world and ourselves. By learning a new language, you will discover new ideas, but most importantly you can discover a new you. The Modern Languages Department at San Joaquin Delta College invites you to take a journey with the various languages we offer from beginners to intermediate or advanced levels of ASL, Chinese, French, German, Italian, Japanese, and Spanish.
