Since opening its doors in 1998, Language Stars has introduced more than 30,000 children to foreign languages with small-group classes and full-immersion activities. Through a selective process, Language Stars recruits ambitious teachers from more than 20 countries who share a common goal of revolutionizing how and when American children learn foreign languages. Parents and Tots Classes are available for children between 1–3 years old, and Kids Only classes are available for children 3–5, 5–8 and 8–10 years old. Absorbent little minds soak up Spanish, Mandarin, French, German, or Arabic with the help of their FunImmersion approach, learning naturally through games, songs, activities and art projects to help kids finally understand their foreign-exchange imaginary friends.

Within this casual setting, students always perform all the prep work themselves, chopping every onion and carrot that goes into their meals. A lot of the cooking happens in the demonstration kitchen, but some takes place on the patio, where there’s a mosaic-tiled wood burning pizza oven and 40-inch grill.

The people at Network Entertainment Studios spend a lot of time at musical performances, dance recitals, and sporting events. It's not that they're just extraordinarily popular or have huge extended families—they're there making sure that the people who are having their big day can remember it in clear audio and video for decades to come. The company started with one camera, one actor, and one director, and at first the founders came together with the goal of creating web series, and to create an online presence for artists and businesses. They still find time for their own creative work, but they've expanded to serve local businesses with animated promos, musicians with music videos, animated promos, explainer videos, and artists' live performances. From storyboarding to sound effects, the staff provide in-depth guidance at every step of the way to a work of moving art.

Whether they are expanding their business network, learning a complicated new process, or trying to get on a first-name basis with their mailman, many professionals wish they had a stronger memory. With Planet Freedom's online memory workshops, the brain training takes place at the student's leisure. Exercises include efficiency lessons and other memory-boosting practices. Planet Freedom's memory videos were created by its president, Tom Weber. A professional speaker with more than 12,000 presentations under his belt, Tom has a strong sense of which techniques work and which don't. But teaching to him isn't only about effectiveness—it's about fun. An avid scuba diver, mountaineer, gorilla trekker, and Ironman racer, Tom loves taking risks and expanding his own horizons. He brings a similar sense of adventure to Planet Freedom, which often reflects his unique blend of seriousness and fun.

Sara McIntosh—the master cobbler behind the Chicago School of Shoemaking—draws on more than 35 years of experience in her craft. Among the things that make the school unique is that they teach their own version of the out-stitch shoemaking technique. Preferred by artisans who prize sustainability over industrial methods, that approach adapts easily to smaller shops with very few elves. Sewing machines and wooden tables await eager hands inside the school. While an exhaust hood keeps the air fresh, students work away at footwear ranging from moccasins and sandals to desert boots. Instructors also teach leather-working techniques that produce stylish jewelry and handbags.
