Fall 2023 online courses will begin mid-September.

Beginner, Intermediate and Immersion classes are offered to adults in 5-10 once-weekly courses. Each class is 1.5 hours of live instruction via Zoom, in a small group. Each course has a different theme or emphasis, so students at all levels continue to progress and learn new vocabulary, grammar and culture.

All classes will be 90 minutes, live instruction via Zoom. Class sizes are limited so every student gets plenty of support. Opettaja Lily will send the Zoom link shortly before the course begins. If you register by PayPal payment, you will get the link!

Please note that the class times are listed in CENTRAL STANDARD TIME.
