Summer Language Classes

While I was on a short vacation this weekend, my husband was busy doing my research for me! He dug up information about the Indy Foreign Language Academy, which offers summer language classes for adults. It's a perfect choice if you're planning to travel to a foreign country, have international business dealings or just want to be able to understand what your kids are saying when they use their high-school foreign language skills to insult you. (My siblings and I used to do that, but my parents finally figured out what "loco" meant.)

The registration deadline for the first summer session (May-June) is April 28. Each class costs $180 plus the cost of a textbook. Available languages include:
  • American Sign Language
  • Arabic
  • English (accent reduction and TOEFL prep)
  • French
  • German
  • Italian (beginning, intermediate and advanced)
  • Japanese
  • Mandarin Chinese
  • Portuguese (beginning and intermediate)
  • Russian
  • Spanish (regular and intensive courses at beginning, intermediate and advanced levels)
  • World languages (an overview of Spanish, French, German and Italian)

The school also offers private instruction in the language of your choice, and it will conduct a class at the location of your choice if you can assemble at least three students.
