Spring I term begins March 6 at Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center, with a variety of affordable language classes, online courses, Spanish for healthcare, social services professionals, and a new Special Topic Workshop series for Spanish. Specializing in conversational Spanish and Portuguese, including European and Brazilian Portuguese, the Language Learning Center also provides classes in French, Italian and English for Non-Native Speakers. Classes are primarily for adult learners, but there is also an after-school program for students between ages 7 and 11, with each term lasting for six weekly sessions.

"Our classes feature small groups of ten or fewer students so that there is more time for individual attention which, of course, leads to faster learning," explains Maria Oliveira, director of Maria Oliveira Language Learning Center, located in Richmond, California. “We work closely with our students to guide them towards becoming bilingual, whether it is through a conversational language class, online options, or even our language classes for healthcare and social services professionals.”
