Language classes are open for registration at Upstate International. They make a great holiday gift; and an honorable New Year’s Resolution! With over 10 different languages to choose from this Winter and over 35 classes: American Sign Language, Chinese, English, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portuguese, Russian, Spanish, and Turkish, there is a class for everyone. Impress your family, friends and colleagues. Classes begin the week of January 4th and end by March 19th.  Enhance your resume and improve your critical thinking skills, memory and multitasking abilities, as well as your career opportunities.
In response to the pandemic, Upstate International is offering a hybrid schedule with some classes being taught in person and many others being taught online. Winter regular classes are $110, meeting once a week for 10 weeks; each class is 75 minutes and will be conducted at the UI Center or online. Winter intensive classes are $320, meeting twice a week for 10 weeks; each class is 90 minutes and will be conducted at the UI Center or online. Students must be members of Upstate International.
Take advantage of language learning this semester with class fees at just about $10.00 per hour. Upstate International, a nonprofit, strives to keep the cost low so as to allow as many upstate residents as possible the opportunity to learn a new language or brush up on one they used to know.  Class sizes are small, usually only 3 to 10 students, to enhance the learning experience and every class is taught by native speakers eager to share their language and culture and dedicated to helping each student succeed. These classes are a perfect Christmas gift.
