Miscellaneous Thursday

A recent report has confirmed that Russia sponsored the illegal drug use of their own athletes during the 2014 Sochi Winter Olympics. This official report has caused a great deal of controversy, especially due to the “world’s leading doping officials” requesting that Russia be banned from competing in the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio. A country has never before been banned from competing in the Olympic games, as it is an event that is meant to bring the world together. However, cheating and “doping” are serious offenses that are also in violation of not only the rules, but the spirit of the games.

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.”
