Welcome to the largest international language school in the Pacific Northwest!

If you’re a student on Vancouver Island or anywhere in BC, the International Language programs at Navigate offer you the fastest and most convenient way to learn a new language outside of actually immersing yourself in a foreign culture.

We’ve partnered with Rosetta Stone™, makers of the world’s leading language-learning software, to offer online courses in more than 20 languages and dialects. Learn French, learn Spanish, or even learn English as a second language – with Navigate and Rosetta Stone™, it’s fun, easy and ridiculously affordable!

We’re based on Vancouver Island but offer our online language courses to students in Vancouver, Victoria, Prince George and wherever you happen to be! 

Rosetta Stone™ Version 3 – Interactive lessons in reading, writing and speaking.

The First Assignments below are used for both our Version 3 Rosetta Stone program as well as our new Rosetta Stone Foundations Gold (formerly TOTALe) program.

Please complete and submit the First Assignment that is appropriate for your situation, using the following as a guideline:

  • Introductory 11 = this is the first, beginner's course; students should have little or no knowledge of the language (or a desire to start from the beginning); students complete Level 1 Units 1 - 4, plus Level 2 Units 5 & 6 of Rosetta Stone in this course.
  • 11 = this is the second course; students should already have some knowledge of the language and/or have already completed our Introductory 11 course; students complete Level 2 Units 7 & 8, plus Level 3 Units 9 - 12 of Rosetta Stone in this course.
  • 12 = this is the third course (available for French, German, Italian, Mandarin, Russian, and Spanish); students should have a solid foundation in the language or have completed the grade 11 course with us; students complete Levels 4 and 5 (Units 13 - 20) of Rosetta Stone in this course.

If you have any questions regarding which course to choose, please contact the Registrar at 1-800-663-7925.

Although Rosetta Stone Version 3 is an excellent computer-based language learning program, it is not a replacement for a live teacher. If you are committed to being able to speak the language you have chosen, we strongly encourage you to consider Rosetta Stone Foundations Gold (formerly TOTALe) option. The  Rosetta Stone Foundations Gold  license will allow you to participate in unlimited live on-line classes with a native speaker. The Studio Sessions, which you can book based on your schedule, are designed to reinforce and practice what you learn in each Rosetta Stone unit and will be an integral part of your success in learning the language.

If you would like to use  Rosetta Stone Foundations Gold, please contact the Registrar at 1-800-663-7925 to make payment.  The cost for the license is $99.  Your course will not be set up until payment has been received for the  Rosetta Stone Foundations Gold license.  Thank you.
