The designs on many world flags have historical significance. Vexillology, or the study of flags speaks to the diverse experiences of different cultures around the world.

For example, the South African flag reflects the country’s British, Dutch and African history. It features half a union jack for the British, the red and blue horizontal colors which remind one of the Dutch flag and green, yellow and black, the colors of the African National Congress.

What Our Students Are Saying

“Planning a visit to Quebec province, I decided to attend a set of adult evening classes given by Nancy Scarselletta at a local high school. Her enthusiasm for, and knowledge of, the French language prompted me to sign up for further individual lessons. Over the last two years, I have come to appreciate Nancy’s vast experience –and infinite patience! — in teaching French with her unique emphasis on phonetics which she studied at the Sorbonne. In my opinion, French is not an easy language for English speakers given its unusual rules with multiple exceptions, potential liaisons, numerous irregular verbs, unfamiliar phonics, and plentiful idioms. I’ve appreciated Nancy’s approach and guidance throughout the course. And it’s been fun.”
