Current Classes

 

To shadow a class, just find the date and time that’s convenient for you on the calendar below, and click on the “Register Now” button for the class you want.

Clicking “register now” in the pop-up description in the calendar will take you to a page where you select “tickets” for each class you want to come to. You’ll have to enter some personal information. This helps us track our visitors, prepare our apprentice teachers, and comply with our partners’ safety guidelines. There is no cost for our community-based Language & Life Skills classes, for Learners or Shadowers.

Registering to shadow a class will not obligate you to pay anything in the future or participate further in our programming – although we hope you will want to!

 

Warning: Attending community-based language classes requires you to interact with other people, including children, in a public or semi-public space. Some of the people you will meet will behave differently than you do. There will be unpredictability, awkwardness and confusion, and you may experience this yourself. Frequently there is laughter and connection. There should never be a boring English class!
