Plunge into Language Learning!
Take Advantage of the relaxed pace of summer in order to jump start – or renew – your foreign language skills! Work with a talented Speak! instructor to customize a course that will help you achieve your personal and/or professional goals, at your pace and at a time that works for you – mornings, afternoons, evenings. Pick from one of 11 foreign language – Arabic, Chinese, French, German, Japanese, Korean, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, Turkish (English/ESL is also an option) – and select a course length from 1-4 weeks, with daily lessons ranging from 2-4 hours. It’s a fact: daily practice is the best way to learn a language, or see significant improvement in your ability to express yourself with ease in a foreign tongue.
