Noncredit Language Classes Offered
DEC. 29, 2006--If you've always wanted to learn to speak Italian or Spanish, here's your chance. The University of Wisconsin-River Falls is offering noncredit language classes for adults beginning in February 2007.
The classes are held in the early evening with convenient, free parking close to class. Classes meet weekly for six weeks beginning with Spanish I on Feb. 6, Italian on Feb. 7, and Spanish II on March 27.
In "Italian for Travelers," participants will learn basic Italian expressions and practical vocabulary and receive cultural and travel insights.
"This relaxed, interactive class of conversation and role playing will help you develop the confidence you need to enjoy a full Italian experience abroad," said Cynthia Wells-O'Malley, UWRF outreach program manager.
Participants are introduced to the language in "Spanish I" and can opt to continue the lessons in "Spanish II." The classes are practical and proficiency-based and include a blend of culture, vocabulary and grammar presented in a relaxed atmosphere.
In addition to travelers, anyone who encounters non-native speakers of English in their community or workplace can benefit from the Spanish language classes, Wells-O'Malley said.
Advanced registration and payment of $85 is required for each class and maybe be done online or by mail. Go to the web site at www.uwrf.edu/ogs for more information or call 715-425-3261 or 800-228-5607.
