Why do you want to learn a world language?

“To travel the world!”

Our weekly classes will get you ready to explore! We believe learning a language is more than understanding grammar rules and lists of vocabulary; it means expanding one’s perspective and learning how to understand another culture from the inside. Conversation partners are also available to help you practice what you have learned in class.
