We are currently offering classes in French, Italian and Spanish which will end in June. Any-one who has some experience in any of those languages is welcome to try a class and see if it works for them. We generally only offer Beginning classes in the Fall.

We also have the possibility of offering a class in Chinese. This would be closer to a Travel Chinese class and would include information on culture, history, places to visit as well as an intro to Mandarin Chinese. Call us at 203-594-3620 if you are interested.
