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.
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!

IN-PERSON ENGLISH (ESL)
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.
Global and Dynamic
At this time, we will not be scheduling any new in-person classes until March, 2022.
The health and safety of the teachers and students who make up our incredible community is our highest priority and it is our hope that by taking this action we will be able to not only follow, but exceed CDC guidelines and do our part in keeping everyone safe during this most recent surge of COVID-19.
