The instruction that I received at the Means Language Center was second to none. As someone with an elementary foundation in Spanish, I was looking to enhance my skills so that I would be conversationally proficient while traveling for business. My instructor assessed my language skills and then developed a personalized lesson plan to help me achieve my goals.
My coworkers and I took Italian lessons with the Means Language Center during the course of a year and loved the classes. Classes were organized by level and our instructor was able to build our conversational skills while giving us homework assignments to build our written skills. I think that the teaching style - I've studied Italian for about two years with several different instructors - was the most effective. I've received many compliments on my progress in Italian.
Fantastic language school--classes are small and comfortable, everyone is super nice and there's almost always wine. This is way more fun than learning a language was in high school/college!
