Classes have started at The Global Language Network. As the weather heats up, GLN’s summer students are spending their time learning languages with us. With exciting classes in a variety of languages, GLN offers students the opportunity to explore new horizons within their classrooms. Languages such as Spanish, Russian, French, Arabic, and Portuguese are in full swing. We’re also offering both Mandarin and Cantonese this summer as well as Japanese. Special classes in Swahili and Serbian/Bosnian/Croatian offer unique opportunities to learn these languages in new ways.
Hindi, Hebrew, Farsi, Polish and Bulgarian are underway thanks to our dedicated teachers who generously give their time to help students learn. There is much to be grateful for at The Global Language Network, from the wonderful teachers who bring their love of inspiring and helping others to the classrooms, to the volunteers who help the operation by giving their time and energies to the organization, to the students who bring their enthusiastic willingness to learn, the organization functions based on a cycle of working collaboratively with others.
You can be a part of this positive phenomenon by joining with us and also by bringing along others to join the network of learning and intercultural exchange. More is more, so please, connect with us as we work to connect more people around the world from this program in Washington, DC. How can you join us? There are many ways.
