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 $195, you get a six-week introductory language program at The Boston Language Institute, located in Kenmore Square (up to a $564 value). Classes take place over the course of six weeks (four weeks in the summer), meeting once or twice a week, and daytime, evening, and Saturday classes are available. Since 1981, The Boston Language Institute has taught more than 140 languages to more than 54,000 students, remaining successful by using native-speaking teachers and small class sizes (typically 4–12 students). With this deal, you’ll take part in an introductory course in one of the following languages:
- Chinese (Mandarin)
- Haitian Creole
The Boston Language Institute uses carefully selected texts and a communicative approach, helping its students become confident in an extensive vocabulary. Prepare for a vacation to Madrid with the Spanish class, where you can learn to greet people and ask questions in the present and past tenses, or avoid declaring "Ich bin ein Worcester sauce" to Germans at the Brandenburg Gate by taking the German course. With The Boston Language Institute’s considerate, helpful instructors, you’ll receive a wealth of attention and be well on your way to verbal and written communication in a new and exciting tongue. The first available class session begins January 11, 2011.
