In addition to the program with Fordham University, QIASS also has its own language school which provides intensive, full-time training for select students in thirteen languages. Students enrolled in the language program generally need at least three years to complete the program and graduate at an advanced level. Classes are led by native speakers with extensive training in language pedagogy. They are conducted in an immersive environment that encourages students to begin actively using their target language from day one. In addition to becoming proficient in speaking, reading, writing, and comprehension, students are also exposed to the cultural and historical contexts of the language they are studying. Following their language training at QIASS, students are afforded an opportunity to study abroad in order to use those skills in a native environment. The Language School itself is structured around principles of Quality Assurance, and is fully accredited by EAQUALS (Evaluation & Accreditation of Quality in Language Services), a prominent European accrediting body that specializes in multiple language programs.
