In view of the global business scenario and growing employment mobility, knowledge of any international language will contribute to value addition in the academic qualification of our students.
The latest fact about the international languages is that there is a deeply felt need and necessity among the Indian businessmen. For instance, the bilateral trade between Indian businessmen and other countries is increasing by leaps and bounds. India is one of the Emerging markets along with China and the relations with France is being reinforced in recent times.
Lack of knowledge of an international language becomes a barrier in business transactions. To overcome such barriers, the management of NMIMS, which is committed to provide quality education to members of the society in general and NMIMS students in particular, has decided to launch programmes of international languages under the aegis of one of its prestigious institutions – "NMIMS Centre for International Studies".

Spanish Language MPSTME ( Batch - 2021-22)
Trying to learn Spanish with Duolingo was great until I started having doubts with no one to get them cleared from. The Spanish Language Learning Program that NMIMS CIS offers came as a boon when I was looking for invigorating extracurriculars to help alleviate the monotony of online classes! The admission process was made seamless by Dhara Ma'am, and the course, taught by Ms Rao, is immensely well-paced and focused. The Professor is exceptionally patient while answering the plethora of questions our class of 10 bombards her with, and she facilitates active participation from every student with her unwavering zest. PDF notes are uploaded post every session, and the assignments that we're given have helped me get a holistic view of the nuances of the language that even two years of Duolingo couldn't provide. Thank you!
Spanish Language (SVKM’s IIS – 2020-21)
Since childhood, I haven't been comfortable with learning new languages. However, I was keen to learn Spanish and I believed that this was the best opportunity to act on it. Akila ma'am's classes are very engaging and she can always find simple ways to teach us. After every concept, she has a bunch of practice sheets and reading passages for us to revise the concept taught and learn how to make practical applications of it. It is also a great revision to practice our pronunciations. She never hesitates to answer any questions or doubts that we might have and is always willing to teach some of us, concepts that we might be struggling with, after class. I do believe that her classes could have been more engaging and fruitful if it were conducted in person. But, I also appreciate her effort to keep the classes engaging while being online.-
(Batch:2018-19) 2. Foreign Language- Japanese and Mandarin
Rakhi Sensei and Satyendra Sir, are top-notch, being highly experienced, very friendly and more than capable of making us understand the heart of the language, speaking for the high standard of the teachers in NMIMS CIS . The administration of Rohit sir and Shweta ma'am was very accommodating. Overall, an amazing experience.
MPSTME (batch - 2020-21) German Language
I am learning German since October last year. My experience in the NMIMS CIS has been amazing. The class timings suited our college timetable and our professor Jayanti ma'am has taught us this language with different techniques and practices which made the learning more interesting. The 2 plus point that I would like to highlight is that during our exams we could amend the timings of our classes as per our exam dates because we all are from the same University, and secondly, ma'am has always been very kind and helpful regarding even our slightest doubts. And because of all the doubt clearing sessions and constant practice worksheets, I can say that I can speak German very fluently now & I would like to continue with next levels too.
