Founded in 1991, the Foreign Language Academy has grown from teaching a limited number of languages to being able to offer its clients and students language instruction for Adults and Children, Interpretation, and Translation in almost any language spoken in the world (see the complete list at the bottom of the page).

    Studentswho enroll in classes at the Foreign Language Academy benefit from having only native speakers as teachers.

A staff of over 150 interpreters works every day helping medical facilities, administrative and educational agencies, as well as local businesses and attorneys to communicate with people who don’t speak English.

Clients from foreign countries look to the Foreign Language Academy to translate short legal documents into English. American companies involved in business around the world come to the Foreign Language Academy to translate documents such as contracts, brochures, and web pages into foreign languages.

Customer satisfaction at a reasonable cost is the #1 reason clients have looked to us for 20 years for their foreign language instruction, interpretation and translation.

Learning a foreign language

World ‘Class’ Celebration

World ‘Class’ Celebration
Teachers, Interpreters and Translators, bringing food from their native lands, recently gathered at the Foreign Language Academy to celebrate the holidays. Representing more than 25 countries from around the world, these talented teachers have chosen Knoxville as their home. Though many have been here for decades the food was most definitely authentic.
The Foreign Language Academy, which was founded in 1991, believes that native speakers are best prepared to teach, interpret and translate. Currently, students ranging in age from 5 to senior citizens are taking classes in 11 languages; naturally, Spanish is the most popular language, but French and Russian are also quite popular. All classes are taught by native speaking teachers.
With regulations encouraging medical facilities to use professional interpreters with patients of limited English proficiency, Foreign Language Academy schedules up to 25 appointments every day at various locations around Knoxville. While it is an added expense to the operation of a medical group, most doctors realize the benefits of communicating in the patient’s natural language, without ambiguity.
The Foreign Language Academy has been expanding its reach into Knox and surrounding counties. Leveraging their network of native speakers, FLA also translates complicated, technical, legal and critical documentation for firms and government organizations on a regular basis.
The holidays provide the ultimate excuse to share faith and bond in a common experience through food and conversation. We’re blessed to be apart of a multi-cultural community and already look forward to next years gathering.
