Due to unforeseen circumstances, all members of the Pima Community College (PCC) Governing Board will be attending the Board's March 8, 2023, Regular Meeting remotely. At the discretion of the Board Chair, PCC administrators and others making scheduled presentations to the Board may also be appearing remotely.

During the "Public Comment-Call to the Audience" portion of tonight's meeting, public comments may still be made either remotely or in person. PCC staff will be on-site in room C-105 to assist members of the public attending in person who wish to address comments to the Board.

World Languages

Anata wa nihongo o hanasemasu ka? Hal tatahadath alearabia? ¿Hablas español? In the 21st century, being able to speak a language in addition to English (such as Japanese, Arabic or Spanish) significantly increases your employability.

But don’t take our word for it: “Language skills are necessary to produce employees U.S. businesses are seeking,” says Howard Berman of the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages.

Pima offers Spanish classes in the Fall and Spring semesters. Depending on the semester, the College also offers classes in a variety of European, Asian, Middle Eastern and Native American languages as well as American Sign Language.
