What You'll Get
Language separates us from the animals, just as Funyuns separate us from our dignity. Dictate the terms of your surrender to the ultimate onion-flavored corn snack in the language of your choice with today's Groupon: for $139, you get a 10-week language course and one book rental from the Foreign Language Institute of Kansas City in Platte Woods (a $282 value).
The Foreign Language Institute of Kansas City imparts linguistic acumen to eager students of all levels with classes in up to 14 languages, all taught by native speakers and utilizing the latest in multimedia teaching methods. Classes last 1.5 hours each week for 10 weeks and are limited to 12 students, allowing for dosages of student-teacher interaction normally only available by prescription. Courses fill on a first-come-first-serve basis, so students must go online and declare their educational intentions in English.
One $12 book rental is included with today’s Groupon, though two classes—Arabic and Haitian Creole—require extra texts that must be rented by the student or the student’s secret admirer. Complimentary beverages and snacks, including coffee and tea, provide aspiring multilinguists with the oral calisthenics required to perform difficult mouth maneuvers.
