Most of our scheduled language classes are designed for adult students who want to learn a another language. We also have three alternative programs:
- English - Accent Reduction -
Classes evaluate the student's problem areas and practice exercises designed to target and remedy those areas. Course includes pronunciation, stress, enunciation, diction, tonality, musicality, syntax, and articulation though use of vowel / consonant exercises, work chants, tongue twisters and readings. Indiviual attention is give to each student's area of difficulty.
- Little Linguals -
Designed for children aged 6-11, the Little Lingual classes in Spanish, French, Italian, Chinese and Persian are geared to get an early start on language learning while helping children enjoy and appreciate a different culture. This is the best time for them to learn a foreign language. Our exciting “Little Lingual” classes meet once a week during the afternoon for one hour. Class content includes: Alphabet, Songs, Games, Practical Words and Phrases, and Basic Dialogs. Ages 12 and above can join our regularly scheduled adult classes.
- Supplemental Discussion Classes - Practice your foreign language skills while discussing films, culture, and actors in a relaxed and fun atmosphere. Film scenes from eight films will spark lively discussions and provide listening practice in four languages. The French Film classes are taught by Veronique, a film expert with advanced degrees from the La Sorbonne University in Paris and Boston University College of Communications.
Some people prefer to take private lessons instead of joining a scheduled class, or take private lessons to occasionally augment their classes. The advantages of private lessons are that the sessions are tailored to the specific needs of the students and they can be useful if the student's language knowledge is uneven, if a more intensified study program is needed, or if scheduling or privacy is a concern. With our large staff of native speaking teachers we can schedule private lessons in most languages. In addition to the languages with scheduled classes listed above we also teach (or have taught) private lessons in languages including
Bulgarian, Cantonese, Finnish, Indonesian, Norwegian, Polish, Romanian, Swahili, and Urdu.
We sell our private lessons in packages of eight 80-minute sessions unless you are enrolled in a class and then they can be scheduled individually. Please call us at (310) 858-0717 for more details.
