Learning a foreign language challenges the intellect, enriches the spirit, and opens up a treasure trove of crank-calling possibilities. Dial into dialects with today's Groupon: for $89, you get 12 hours of English, Spanish, French, Italian, or Chinese language classes from Pro Learning Center in Clifton (up to a $229 value). Classes may be taken in one-, two-, or three-hour increments on weekdays or weekends and must be completed within six weeks.
Pro Learning Center’s instructors help students bridge their language gaps with methods targeted at bringing speedy multilingualism to untrained tongues. English and Spanish classes are taught using the Callan method, which constantly immerses students in speaking and listening at above-average speeds, aimed at growing bilingual brain cells four times faster than other methods. The results-oriented class is focused on helping students efficiently reach personal and professional goals, such as ceding the state of Florida back to the king of Spain. French, Italian, and Chinese classes are taught using more traditional methods that ingratiate students to new worlds of work, culture, and international intrigue. Access to online classes is included, making it easy to study whenever colicky hamsters finally settle in for naps.
Pro Learning Center
Pro Learning Center's linguists teach English and Spanish with the expedient Callan Method, and instruct students in French, Italian, and Chinese with more traditional techniques. In Callan Method classes, adults and kids put their gray cells on red alert as brains are bombarded with constant repetition and conversation at up to 240 words per minute. The breakneck speed of chatter stimulates a language reflex, which allows students to respond naturally when addressed in their language of choice or when spooked by a foreign ghost. Alternatively, French, Italian, and Chinese classes take a more measured approach, giving students a chance to gradually develop vocabularies and conversation skills. Classes take place over the course of six weeks in sessions as lengthy or brief as each student's personal schedule permits, allowing for learning around work or increasingly less awkward visits to other countries. Students also have access to Pro Learning Center's online courses, which offer additional resources for at-home learning.
