Note: This can only be done between Feb. 1 and September 15th .
Only schools issuing full high school diplomas have CEEB codes. LanguageBird® is accredited by the Western Association of Schools and Colleges (WASC) and Cognia to specialize in world language studies. LanguageBird does not offer a full high school diploma.
Middle and High School Programs – Curriculum and Evaluation
Of course, if you are a beginner (levels 1-2 +), all of our teachers are fully bi-lingual and will switch back and forth between English and the language you are studying.
LanguageBird is project-based. At the culmination of each semester, you will be expected to turn in a project to your instructor. Depending on your level of study this could involve a variety of activities and will always include: research, writing, listening, creating, and speaking. Your final project is turned in at the end of the course to your instructor. Often it is presented and your teacher will ask you questions. Sometimes it is filmed and turned in. You will always have input and choice as to the topic of their project.
Pace of Lessons
If your schedule does not permit you to take more than one lesson a week, that’s fine. Provided you don’t skip any weeks, you will finish a full year of study in 24 weeks! That’s still much faster than a traditional class in school. If you are not taking lessons for credit, you can schedule your lessons as frequently as you wish. Again, remember, the more consistent you are, the more quickly you will see progress!
We offer lessons on weekdays as well as weekends. Some students like to learn early in the morning, sometimes it’s after school. Tell us what you need.
You can also use the camera built into your computer or an attached web cam, which is very easy to set up. Usually you just plug it into your USB port and are ready to go. Use of a camera is mandatory. It enhances the experience!

Not only do our instructors possess strong academic backgrounds and teaching qualifications, they are personable, empathetic, and talented professionals who deliver engaging one-to-one lessons promoting culture and communicative teaching methods. They are all fully bi-lingual and most of all, they are passionate about wanting to share their language and culture with you!

How it Works
We recommend you talk to your school counselor and let them know you would like to take a LanguageBird course. Most high schools require 2 years of a world language and courses completed through LanguageBird may be able to fulfill this requirement. Some high schools will fill out a concurrent enrollment form and ask you to bring in or send a certificate of completion once your LanguageBird course is finished. We are happy to work with your high school administrator and counselors!
