The Sylvester family had bartending in its blood. Whether it was Uncle Mickey holding court with 40 years' worth of regulars or Tony Sr. mixing one of his signature Skip and Go Nakeds, they exemplified the easy grace and no-nonsense craftsmanship found in a true barman's barman. That dedication to well-poured drinks carried over to Tony Jr., who has spent the last 35 years training mixologists nationwide through the curriculum of his ABC Bartending Schools. Taught behind fully functional bars, his courses educate students in topics ranging from drink recipes and equipment setup to flair moves and alcohol awareness. His schools also emphasize employment; after graduation, students can take advantage of a nationwide job placement service to land gigs in Miami nightclubs, Las Vegas casinos, or the bar cars of Chicago's El trains.

Professional bartenders teach in classrooms set up as fully functioning bars. The facilities present lifelike conditions for students to learn skills such as the proper shake and pour for a variety of cocktails, muddling raw ingredients, and getting the right amount of head on a draft beer. Courses also cover the technical elements of bartending, which may include setting up drink stations, understanding liquor laws and board-of-health requirements, and operating payment systems that accept both credit cards and gold ingots.

HablEspana transforms students into Español elocutionists with its Beginner Bootcamp classes, each taught by a native Spanish-speaking instructor. In less than one month, linguistic learners can turn graceless gibberish into speech as smooth as velvet that’s been through the blender. Each two-hour class encourages active participation and stimulates learning using audio-visual materials, Spanish TV segments, and music and video series. Classes remain personal since sizes range from three to eight students, or the ideal size for building a human pyramid. Students will receive handouts and materials in class, and may also choose to purchase a book recommended for the course ($20, not covered by this Groupon). Classes take place on Tuesday and Thursday evenings and Saturday mornings.

AES Languages, or Adaptive Education Services, expands cultural horizons and crushes communication barriers with dynamic language programs for businesses and individual students. Experienced instructors teach tongues to pronounce delicate sonants and powerful plosives as they stretch minds toward fluency. Foreign-language book clubs and immersive trips to international locales boost familiarity with a country's language and customs and make navigating international conversation easier than paying a guide to make prewritten subtitles.
