TESTIMONIALS

"As a professor of Latin and Greek, I have a lot of experience both teaching and taking language courses. In signing my 8-year old son up for introductory Latin, I wasn't sure either how engaged he would be or how much he would benefit from the class. I came away thoroughly impressed by the quality of instruction. My son absolutely loved it and also learned a great deal. I would highly recommend this class to any interested parent."
