Foreign Languages Centre

As the world becomes increasingly interconnected through the processes of globalization, proficiency in more than one language is critical for business, trade, diplomacy, and to promote international cooperation, mutual understanding, and respect. For students, learning more than one language can enrich their academic and life experiences and open doors to opportunities. At YES, we have partnered with Goethe Institut (Max Mueller) and Alliance Francais to teach German and French respectively.

The Goethe-Institut promotes the study of German as a language and helps boost international relations. Best known for conducting German courses, they offer courses in the language across all levels of proficiency.

Recognized by the French Embassy in India, Alliance Française has played a pioneering role in promoting French culture in the City and makes students proficient in French language and learn about the unique character, diversity, history, heritage and gastronomy of France.
