About Our Language School

The Language Learning Institute is a successful language school in Latham, New York, offering classes in French, Spanish, Italian, and Mandarin Chinese.

How The Language Learning Institute Began

The school came into existence in January 2005 as the Learn French Language Institute. After having spent over 30+ years as a French teacher in both private and public education, Ms. Scarselletta decided to put her education and experience together to bring her skills to a different audience.

By the end of 2005, the school had the beginning levels of its offerings, with it’s own methodology and curriculum set in place for the adult language program. At this point, the school was renamed to “The Language Learning Institute” to more accurately represent the continual nature of learning any language and to better represent our mission. With the updated name, we were no longer limited to offering French courses and classes, and after months of research and planning, “The Language Learning Institute, LLC” became a company in April of 2006.

The Language Learning Institute Today

Today we offer classes and private lessons for adults and children in French, Italian, Mandarin Chinese and Spanish.

We are also branching out in collaborative efforts to work with schools and civic organizations to bring our unique children’s programs to a more convenient setting for parents. These efforts have enhanced opportunities for language learning for k through 5th graders in both Saratoga Springs and Shenedehowa Central School Systems. Contact us for information about how we can bring our programs into your schools.

What Our Students Are Saying

“The Language Learning Institute is the only venue which teaches more than just conversational Italian, other than enrolling in a college course. I had tried a few Italian language classes from other continuing education places but it was always the same: the class was dominated by those planning a trip to Italy and wanting to have travel vocabulary and phrases under their belts.

The Language Learning Institute teaches Italian as a true language-you learn by listening to Italian, speaking it, reading it and writing it. We have a text book and a workbook, and are tackling all the basics of a language-alphabet, grammar, idioms, the way the Italians think. The price is reasonable, the pace is great for working people, and the staff is extremely knowledgeable.”
