Weekly Language Classes

The comprehensive approach to language learning at Penobscot School includes work in language proficiency, the ability to communicate effectively, and an overview of cultural aspects associated with the student’s language of choice. The school is committed to offering a variety of methods to fully engage learners of all ages and at all levels. This includes the opportunity to study language and culture through culinary activity in the school’s newly renovated, state-of-the art kitchen.

Reasons for language learning vary. Some wish to travel. Others enjoy the health benefits associated with learning a language other than one’s native tongue. Some want to revive rusty language skills. Still others enjoy the rich experience of reading the literature of other cultures. Whatever your reason, please join us!

All 2021 Winter Session classes at Penobscot Language School will be offered ONLINE as part of our 12 week session (starting the week of January 11th). We will continue to observe health and safety precautions related to the COVID 19 pandemic and follow Public Health officials’ advice about reopening with new social distancing guidelines in place at the school.

We offer private and semi-private tutorials in all of the languages we offer classes for (and more!). We also are happy to put together a class for you if you have a group of 3 or more people that want to study at the same level. Please inquire by emailing [email protected].
