In a world that's constantly shrinking due to communication technology, the ease of travel, and a mad scientist's reduction beam, bilingual people have a distinct advantage over single-language speakers. Futura Language Professionals embraces this development and prepares its students to tackle international affairs through schools scattered from Minnesota to Florida, offering accessible language courses with a special emphasis on Spanish. Degreed, native-speaking teachers lead classes with a balance of vocabulary and cultural lessons on music, art, and food. Summer camps and afterschool programs await students ages 3–12, whereas adults can hone their communication savvy in classes designed for business conversations, allowing expansion into overseas markets and more successful collaboration when making amusement parks on the moon.
The instructors at Bilingual World of Houston immerse students of all levels in one of seven different languages, including Spanish, Russian, Arabic, and Chinese. They lead small group classes, comprised of no more than six students, and impart pronunciation and grammar with activities that transcend mere memorization. Devoted to the student's learning preferences, the team also meets pupils for private one-on-one sessions and hosts online classes students can attend from home.
Instead of arranging thousands of slides and photos into a presentable slide show or album, you could just take them all to M & M Video Systems. There, the staff transfers the images to DVDs, which can then be shared with family members. The experts also repair VHS and audio tapes, fixing cassette shells and exorcising demons from Black Sabbath 8-tracks.
Cell Phone Hospital's technicians offer full repair services on a wide range of devices, including iPhones, Android phones, and Blackberries. They keep most of their parts on hand and can usually perform repairs quickly while customers wait. They don't limit their services to locals, either; they also run a nationwide mail-in repair business so people in every state can benefit from their expertise and sharp pen-pal skills.
Tranquil Waters Spa combines the refreshing powers of a day spa with the healing prowess of a wellness center to create a haven of whole body well-being. Specialists keep exteriors shiny and new with aesthetic treatments that range from traditional facials and AHA chemical peels to aromatherapy and bath-salt treatments. Resident therapist Dr. Lew Huff flaunts holistic regimens focused on treating the root cause of ailments and not just their symptoms through painless acupuncture, chiropractic care, hypnotherapy, and nutritional counseling. A multidisciplinary assessment can also help determine the path to wellness as a slew of specialists—such as acupuncturists, structural therapists, and aromatherapists—heal from every angle like a Neosporin hot tub. Meanwhile, the Phoenix Massage Therapy School in Houston unleashes its students inside the spa to learn a range of massage modalities, as its interns—all of whom have completed at least half the hours required to become professional spa experts—bring their newly acquired skills to the treatment table.
