Language Conversation Classes: Develop language skills and build community!

 

Spring classes begin March 26, 2018!

Conversation Classes

Conversation classes are designed for people who already have some background in studying a language and who wish to practice and continue their cultural exploration. Course levels are loosely structured; students may self-select into their level. At the completion of the class, students may elect to enroll in the same level or move to a different level. Students may learn at a pace with which they are comfortable. Materials and tools are available online, and students learn and practice grammar and vocabulary topics between each class. Students are encouraged to participate in cultural events and different opportunities to engage with cultures and languages outside of the classroom.
