Our Mission

Our mission is to expose children to languages at an early age in order to promote cultural tolerance, build social skills, and provide children a jump start in their future as they prepare to enter a modern age operating in a global economy. We offer the following after school programs:
Learn French

Learn French

With over 200 million French speakers spanning across 5 continents, French has become one of the most taught & learned foreign languages, second only to English. France is a fun, romantic, and culturally rich country known for cooking, fashion, live theater, visual arts and architecture.

Learn Spanish

Learn Spanish

If you live in California, you probably know the importance of learning Spanish or understanding the culture. There are over 400 million Spanish speakers worldwide with over 33 million of those speakers in the United States alone. That puts Spanish as the second most spoken language in the United States.

Learn English

Learn English

With thousands of languages spoken around the world, communicating, understanding, or working with the international community can prove challenging. English is the second most commonly spoken language around the world and is considered one of, if not the most, important languages to learn.

Learn Russian

Learn Russian

Russian is one of the most spoken languages in the world. Russia covers about an eighth of the world's land surface making it the largest country in the world. Russian has become important in the fields of chemistry, physics, geology, and mathematics.

Sign Language

Sign Language

American Sign Language is a fun language for children to learn and allows them to communicate in an exciting new way. Studies show that adding movement and visual elements to verbal communication can help children retain or understand vocabulary, spelling, and reading.

Learn Chinese

Learn Chinese

China has become a major economic, political, and cultural force with plans to become even more so in our children’s future. Tremendous advantages come with understanding Mandarin and the Chinese culture particularly in international business and political careers.

Our Story

Our Story

After School Languages is comprised of numerous language teachers with PhDs, Master’s degrees, professional translation experience, or multilingual education. The founder of After School Languages is a professional linguist, translator, and teacher who has previously worked for the World Health Organization's International Agency for Research on Cancer based in Lyon, France, and worked as a translator and translation editor for global corporations like Bushnell, Toyota, Playdoh, Mattel Toys, and more. Upon relocating to Santa Barbara, California, Miss Rose was shocked about the lack of language programs teaching children during early ages, when it is the easiest for them to learn. Studies have shown that in order to become fluent in a language, it is important to be exposed to it before the age of 11. Speaking four languages, graduating top of her class with a Master’s degree in international communications, and years of experience working with languages and children, she set out to develop the most effective youth language program available.

After School Languages works with teachers and tutors that are professional, easy to work with, and experienced with a variety of ages and abilities. We strive to provide a safe and fun after school environment by being both accommodating and responsive to the needs of our students, parents, and partnering schools.
