    LanguageBird® is Flexible: 

    We work with your schedule. A private instructor comes to you! Students use our courses to make more room in their daily school schedule, to get ahead, make-up a class or study a language not offered at their school. Our courses run year-round, and students can start anytime. Lessons do not expire and can be paused if needed. Cancel a lesson and reschedule with 24 hours’ notice.

    Our Languages:  

    American Sign Language













    English (ELL)

    LanguageBird® is fully accredited by two accreditation agencies: Western Association for Schools and Colleges (WASC) and AdvancED (Cognia).

    Our courses are also approved by the NCAA for student athletes and the University of California (UC).

    Our accreditation sources articulate and are reciprocal with other regional accreditation agencies, meaning earned credits through LanguageBird are generally transferable to other secondary educational institutions. 

    How do I get high school credit?

    LanguageBird® will send a transcript to your high school or any colleges you apply to via Parchment (electronically) or through US mail. Grades from our courses can be transferred to your high school transcript. If you have not met your high school graduation requirements for world language, we recommend you talk to your school counselor and let them know you would like to take a LanguageBird® course. Most college-prep high schools require 2 years of world language. Some high schools will have you fill out a concurrent enrollment form or ask you to send a transcript once your LanguageBird® course is complete.

    We are happy to work with your high school administrator and counselors!

    • "LanguageBird has provided me with opportunities that many other places did not. It allowed me the chance to learn a language in the comfort of my own home, with learning options that fit to my preferred schedule. The teacher I was assigned was one of my favorite teachers I've ever been able to work with!"

    • "Dr. Koven and the staff at LanguageBird have been amazing. My son is a high school age student athlete who plays baseball for Team USA and travels both domestically and internationally year around. They have given him the one on one instruction he needed to master his foreign language and succeed. Their staff has bent over backwards to meet my son's travel and playing schedule. In the standard classroom setting, my son was falling behind and getting lost. Thank you LanguageBird."

    • "I highly recommend Language Bird! After 3 years invested in studying Spanish in middle school, my son's high school offered sub-standard Spanish classes, and he wanted to know how to speak and understand the language, not just get a good grade. LanguageBird was a great solution! His teacher, was patient and engaging, and he learned so much more, much faster, than he would've at school. His classes were scheduled at times convenient for him when he was alert and relaxed. Now his college requirements are met, he has a renewed interest in the language, and he was also able to schedule another elective in his high school schedule in the slot where Spanish would've been."

    • "We have loved our experience with Language Bird. Thanks you so much Mercedes for the experience, knowledge and care you have brought to your lessons with Grace. When I have the opportunity to overhear her speaking in Spanish during lessons I beam with pride. The gift of speaking a second language was something I always wanted for my children. Thank you again for being such a great fit for Grace's Spanish class needs this year. "

    • "LanguageBird is one of the tricks I share with the families I work with in my college counseling practice. Students who take a foreign language throughout high school have increased odds of getting accepted to top universities and increased opportunities for scholarships. My clients who dropped foreign language because it was too hard, too easy, they were too busy or their school didn't offer it can take LanguageBird courses on their own time at their own pace. It shows colleges you are committed to seeing your studies through, you don't quit and you value learning and have a global consciousness. LanguageBird's one-to-one personalized approach and flexible schedule allows my students to continue their language studies throughout high school or make up courses they didn't do well in earlier in high school. It's a great learning resource for my students."
