Happy Holidays! December is a wonderful month filled with the anticipation of snow and the wonderful holidays of Chanukah, Christmas and Kwanzaa. It is a time of contemplation, gift giving and gatherings.

In November we welcomed in the Beaujolais Nouveau in Saratoga and it was a wonderful event enjoyed by all who attended. Our next event will be announced in January so keep checking our website for the announcement or joins us on facebook for up to the minute updates.

We are looking ahead to January 2011. We will be offering Beginning French, Beginning Italian, Beginning Spanish and Beginning Russian classes and we are taking registrations now.

Our October concert, The Sounds of Music: A Tour of France, Germany, Italy and Russia through Classical Music was quite the treat. The performers were amazing: Irina Petrik, Kelly Hutchinson, Vedrana Kalas, and Sariah Mae Patrick accompanied by Michael Clement. I was very pleased to be able to offer a concert of this caliber.

This month we will be starting our children’s Mommy and Me Program as well as our Learn to Speak French After School Program. Registrations are being taken now.

We are on facebook and we invite you to befriend The Language Learning Institute and post your comments. Our friends list is growing and we would love to have you join us and stay updated.
