Beginning classes are divided by age group and previous enrollment. Five students minimum and 10 maximum. Students with previous language experience will be placed in classes based on proficiency. Bilingual and heritage speakers are welcome.

Classes are taught by experienced language instructors and assisted by university students with an educational background. We also have staff that helps with bathroom breaks and crafts. Classes are held in a beautiful university building  with easy and free parking.
