In early March 2020, we made the difficult but necessary decision to cancel all in-person language group classes and private lessons and move to an entirely online platform. In less than two weeks, our entire community of students, teachers, and staff rallied together to make online learning not only possible, but successful. We are so grateful to everyone who worked to provide amazing language-learning experiences under such difficult circumstances.
As of July 2021, all of our group classes and private lessons will remain online, primarily using the Microsoft Teams platform. We are considering a safe and measured return to in-person learning this year, with a potential in-person reopening in September 2021, but we are still deciding exactly when that will be and what that will look like.
However, we are now fortunate enough to have dedicated students and passionate teachers from across the country and around the world, and we plan to keep and expand our online language program, even as we prepare for a return to in-person classes in New York City.
The events of 2020 required all of us to be adaptable, resilient, and resourceful, and we’re keeping that spirit of camaraderie into 2021 and beyond.
Thank you, and be well!
