Featured Classes


“I love the French theatre class. There is no other way to put it. Andy, the professor, has created a dynamique course using theatre as its foundation. This class has reignited my passion for the language by using a creative and fun approach to learning. “La notation phonétique”, provided as a helpful tool, has boosted my confidence in pronunciation. Kudos to Andy. He’s the best!!”
