Utilizing a time-tested curriculum devised by language teacher Maximilian Berlitz in 1878, Berlitz recruits fluent instructors to teach their native languages to pupils during in-person and online lessons. Instructors teach dozens of languages in accordance with the acclaimed Berlitz Method, which focuses heavily on conversation, active student participation, and knowing how to conjugate verbs while blindfolded. Each lesson builds upon skills taught during previous sessions, starting with essential techniques and eventually covering more intricate components to develop a confident command of the language. Berlitz further cultivates foreign-language wisdom with services for corporations, schools, and government agencies at more than 500 locations in 70 countries and three planetary systems.
Massage therapist Sarah Stivers spent her first two years out of massage therapy school working at a chiropractic clinic. Maybe that's why her massages are so good at relieving pain. She gears each of her craniosacral, myofascial, and shiatsu massages to increase blood circulation and promote recovery from injury. But you don't have to be hurt before you benefit from Sarah's soothing strokes. She innately bakes relaxation into sessions, lulling clients into stress-free states with long, rhythmic pressures.
In a sense, Portland State's Department of Theatre and Film is at the very center of the university. Its stately home, Lincoln Hall, was the first building erected on campus, in 1911. 475 plush seats curve around the stage of Lincoln Performance Hall inside, built with lots of leg room and a steep incline that insures excellent visibility even during plays cast with the tiniest of actors. The theater underwent a total renovation in 2010, and in addition to the visible facelift, backstage improvements now allow the department to mount even more elaborate productions.

The workshops culminate in a book-release party and community reading scheduled for August 26, when 50 participants will read from the anthology and share their work with the community.
At Gracie’s Wrench, a certified instructor with 11 years of experience teaches groups of up to six the basics of bike diagnostics and maintenance. During a hands-on four-hour session, pedaling pupils practice on their own two-wheelers with provided tools, learning techniques and tricks for changing flats, basic maintenance, and teaching bikes to come when called. The teacher will also introduce the fundamentals of break and shifting adjustments, replacing pads, and setting up a maintenance schedule. Individual attention, handouts, and a review at the end of the workshop help students turn bicycles into well-oiled, city-cruising machines that will never burst into flames for no reason.
