An Exceptional Learning Experience.
At RoLa, we believe that all students should have the opportunity to speak – after all, that is why most students learn a second language! All our classes are limited to small groups of 6 students or fewer, and are taught by experienced native speakers who have been trained in the RoLa Method. Enroll in our hands-on, innovative classes to suit your needs and background, both live in our Cambridge offices, and online. Click below to learn more about the six languages we are offering. Group classes are for students 17 years old (high school senior) and above.
The Language of Romance
Spanish is becoming increasingly important both in the United States and around the world! Nearly 500 million people speak Spanish as either a native language or as a second language. 22 countries use Spanish as their official language.
Fun and Challenging
Boston has a thriving Portuguese-speaking community, and with Brazil's rise on the world stage, Portuguese has become one of RoLa's fastest-growing programs. With over 260 million total speakers, Portuguese is usually listed as the sixth most natively spoken language in the world.
Global and Dynamic
English today is a global lingua franca, with nearly 1 billion people around the world speaking it as either their first or second language. We offer English classes to people from all walks of life and language, from students to professionals. Our English as a second language (ESL) program is conversation-based, with some grammar review, and focuses primarily on speaking, comprehension, and conversational skills.
It's More Than Just Beautiful: It's Radiant!
French has long been a popular RoLa offering, not only for travelers, but also working professionals and students taking it just for fun! Nearly 200 million around the world speak French, and 29 countries use it as an official language.
The Language of Classical Music
RoLa is excited to add Italian to its repertoire! Our goal as educators is to spur our students’ curiosity, and allow them to learn at their own pace. Italian is spoken by 57.7 million people in Italy with a total worldwide of 64 million speakers!
As China grows prominent on the world stage, more and more people are interested to learn Mandarin Chinese. Nearly 1.2 billion people (around 16% of the world's population) speak some form of Chinese as their first language.
Learning Mandarin can help you better understand Chinese culture, bridge the culture gap, improve your intercultural communication skills, and even expand your career and business!
