August 2010

During the month of August we are still conducting private and small group classes. If you, or someone you know, would like private lessons for language improvement or business and travel, call us at 518-346-7096 . We would be glad to set you up with a program that will meet your needs.

Our fall registration is underway. We have new level one classes starting for the Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced student in French. There are also French classes already in progress to which new students are invited to join. We are offering our Beginning Italian classes for adults and also have classes in progress that anyone can join, as well as Beginning and Intermediate Spanish.

This fall we are also introducing our “Live on Line with Luisa” Italian Language Program. We will be ready by mid-August to start our private language classes in Italian. In September we will be offering Beginning Italian Class – Level 4 on line from a central location. As the program and our technology develop, students will be able to stay in their own home and take group classes. We are very excited about this venture and we have been working on it for several months.

We are offering Russian this fall as well. For immediate needs, we offer private lessons…

July 2010

School’s out but not for The Language Learning Institute! We just completed our Learn to Speak French Camp for kids and all had a great time. They were sad to see it end.

Our Learn to Speak Russian Camp for kids is planned for the week of July 26th. Join us for all kinds of fun, games and songs in Russian. There is still time to sign up!

Don’t forget our Welsh classes starting this summer on July 14th the first time. We are very
excited about the debut of this language to our course offerings.

Spanish is offered this summer in the way of private and small group classes, which will be offered through August 26th.

Our regularly scheduled classes end July 19th and will resume after Labor Day. All private lessons and semi-private classes will continue through the month of August. The private lessons and semi-private classes are perfect for those who enjoy travelling; they offer more flexibility in
scheduling.

Our newsletter is missing one of our writers this month. Passport to the Francophone World by Nouara will not be appearing this summer. Nouara is travelling with her family. Next month we will have a new writer and a new subject to delight and entertain you.

Be sure to plan ahead for September….

May 2010

We have an amazing line up of programs starting in May and running through the summer.
On May 27th at 7PM we are introducing the Russian language at The Language Learning Institute with an Introduction to Russian Folk Music Seminar. Irina Petrik, Ukraine born professional musician fluent in Russian, joined our staff a few months ago and we have developed a wonderful program to be enjoyed by all. This Language Learning Institute exclusive will leave you, singing in Russian a refrain to a popular folk song, knowing something about Russian folk instruments, as well as traditional Russian folk dress (yes, Irina will be wearing one that evening while she presents), and you will even learn a bit of Russian folk dance. This is an interactive presentation so you will get to participate on a level most comfortable for you…including just sitting back and taking it all in! We have tickets on sale now through May 27th at noon for a special pre-sale price of $9.00 for students and $12.00 for adults. At the door or after noon on May 27th, tickets will be $10 for students and $15 for adults. The program will end with light Russian refreshments. Come one! Come all! No one is too young or too old…and you don’t have to know Russian to enjoy. The program will be presented in English.
This summer, camp choices are plentiful with our Learn to Speak French, Learn to Speak Spanish and Learn to Speak Russian.
