Community Language Classes

Register Now for Fall 2020 Language Classes!

All fall 2020 classes will begin online. Current mask and distancing precautions make it difficult to hold language classes in-person. We hope to resume in-person classes later in the fall or in 2021, but will only do so once most students are comfortable returning to the classroom.
