The goal of this course is to set the foundation for further language learning and understanding.

Learners will be able to view new lessons weekly on our website. The week’s lesson then will be discussed in a classroom held on Zoom. Class is open to anyone who wants to attend. Links to the classroom will be announced every week using our social media account on Facebook. In person classes will resume just as soon it is safe to do so.
