    I saw a Groupon ad for a 6 week language course and was wondering what is the format for learning the language, book lessons, conversation etc…? Is the course language specific? How many days a week? What time do the classes meet?

      Thanks so much for your interest, Mary. We are sending you a personalized reply now that our new six week classes are open for enrollment. To answer your questions briefly:

      GLN is a not-for-profit organization that is dedicated to affordable, immersive language learning in over 60+ languages. This semester, we are offering approximately 90 classes in total of which 20 are new classes for six weeks from late March/early April through mid-May. Our summer semester will begin in early June and will last 6 weeks. Our next round of 12 week classes will start in September.

      The Groupon promotion is available to first-time students at The Global Language Network. Our approach is conversationally-driven to help you to really speak and communicate in your chosen language. We offer 5 different levels of curricula that help you build linguistic and cultural knowledge as you become more familiar with a culture. Each course is taught by a native or highly fluent trained instructor who is ready to share with you in a fun and informative way. Classes meet once per week for 6 or 12 weeks depending upon the specific course. The times are conveniently arranged on evenings and weekends. You can view our Schedule Page in the Learn tab for more information. As I mentioned, we are also personally following up with you.

      A great way to reach us is by emailing learn@thegln.org.
