Students practice speaking, listening, reading, and writing with their peers under the guidance of the teacher. Classes are small to allow for active participation. This is a wonderful opportunity to experience a variety of cultures. Morning, afternoon and evening classes are available with three levels (Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced).  We look forward to welcoming you into our program.
