ABOUT OUR CLASSES

At ABC we’re introducing thousands of people to a way of learning languages that’s surprisingly fun and effective. You will be guided to speak from the very first lesson while our instructors arm you with the tools you need to understand and absorb the language.  Student goals range from wanting to learn some basics in preparation for a trip abroad to long-term language learners. With a maximum of only ten students per class, you are guaranteed plenty of personal attention as you conquer fundamentals to advanced skills of your chosen language.

ABOUT TOTAL BEGINNER CLASSES

Our Total Beginner classes are designed for students with little or no background in the language.   To get a base in the language, we recommend starting with 12 weeks.  6- and 8-week enrollment options are ideal for students who want to get a taste of the language, are preparing for a trip or just want to pick up some basics and have a limited timeframe.  At the end of any enrollment, you always have the option of adding additional weeks to your program and continuing in your class as it progresses.  To get started, just click on the language of your choice to the right and see what we have on offer!

ABOUT BEGINNER 2 TO ADVANCED CLASSES

At ABC, we offer a rolling admission for above-beginner students of all levels. To find out what classes we have at your level, select the language of your choice and either fill out our self-evaluation form or choose from one of the above-beginner classes posted. Once you choose a class that fits your level and schedule, you are welcome to come any time for your first/trial class. If all goes well, this will be considered your first class and you may choose from one of our enrollment packages. If the class is not the right level, you will not be charged and we will do our best to find you a more suitable class.

OUR PHILOSOPHY

We believe that the steps to successfully learning a new foreign language are much the same for every student, while the path to learning is highly individualized. With that in mind, ABC instructors have the freedom to address each group’s needs and learning patterns so that, while following a logical progression, each class goes at a pace that works for you, the students.

We also know that your process won’t be helped by pressure, tests, or requirements that you ”keep up” with everybody else. That’s why we have created an environment where language learners proceed at their own pace, where each student discovers his or her own path to proficiency. If you find yourself in a group that isn’t working for your learning needs, come talk to us! The staff and teachers are here to help you every step of the way. All you need to do is stay on your path and your efforts will be rewarded with success.
