languages 2008

Remember those free language classes I mentioned at the local community college? Last year, they had only nominal tuition (free or $10.80 depending on the day of the week) and ran for 16 weeks for a total of 32 hours of instruction.

This year, the same beginner classes run for 8 weeks, for a total of either 16 or 32 hours of instruction, and cost $78.20 or $156.40. I guess the free tuition was too good to last.

Nevertheless, I think I'll sign up for one. Maybe Russian? Or perhaps Chinese?
