Montco expands lifelong learning language classes for fall
I recently received this press release from Montgomery County Community College. If you’ve been wanting to brush up on or learn a new language for business, travel or just because you have an insatiable curiosity, now’s your chance to do it conveniently at the Pottstown campus!
Aug. 10, 2011, Blue Bell/Pottstown, Pa. — Montgomery County Community College is adding new languages to its Lifelong Learning programs and is expanding offerings to the West Campus in Pottstown.
Designed for adult learners without the pressure of examinations and grades, small classes are taught by native or near-native fluency instructors. The relaxed atmosphere is ideal for individuals interested in preparing for trip, brushing up on a language, or mastering a new language.
In addition to learning vocabulary, pronunciation and grammar, all courses incorporate cultural features in geography, history, politics, the arts and foods. All learning levels are welcome, from beginners in the Discover Language series (e.g., greetings, asking directions, ordering in restaurants) to more advanced learners in the Immersion and Progression classes (e.g., literature, politics).
New languages, including Hungarian, have been added to the course selection to reflect shifts in demographics and increasing local interest.
Fall classes begin in September and October and are offered at the College’s Central Campus, 340 DeKalb Pike, Blue Bell, and for the first time at the West Campus, 101 College Drive, Pottstown.
