People can sign up and learn Spanish, Italian and French this fall. Urbana Park District will host the classes on Zoom. Instructors from Language in Action, Inc., will teach the live classes.
“They have their own professional foreign language speakers that can teach many classes. Through Zoom, they are able to reach multiple communities across the State without having to worry about traveling,” said Matthew Lewis, Community Program Coordinator at the park district.
People age 3 through adult can learn Spanish. Kids ages 7 – 11 can learn French and Italian.
Lewis added, “Whether you know 0 words or 1,000 words, this class is designed to teach everyone at their own pace. Registrants are welcome to sign up if they have a genuine interest in learning another language they aren’t familiar with.”
It costs $60 dollars for all classes and all age levels. Sign up at urbanaparks.org/register, or call (217) 367-1544 for more information or to register.
The deadline to register for the next session of classes is February 15.
“I hope students are able to take away the satisfaction of learning a new language and that they felt like they got their money and time’s worth from the class,” Lewis concluded.
