Learn to Speak a Language & Travel

The Learn to Speak a Language and Travel division of the school was started in July 2004. It is designed to complement the private and group instruction and to include all other travelers who are interested in the history and culture of the French Speaking World but do not want to formally study French.

Each trip includes a number of 1 hour classes prior to departure as well as guidance and instruction while on the trip. During the classes, you will meet your fellow travelers, study some of the history and culture of the areas to be visited and learn some French in order to be able to read the menu and order. Each culture has its own world of foods indigenous to its area and we will be addressing these as well so that you can thoroughly enjoy what you will be experiencing.

Time is also spent going over trip questions such as dress, money, and other concerns that you may have.

Enjoy as you peruse some of the photos of our past trips and watch for date announcements of future travel opportunities.

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.”
