Student learning a language

Learn a New Language

The ability to communicate in more than one language opens tremendous opportunities for employment and personal enjoyment. At NECC we are committed to helping you learn a new language so you can improve communications, better understand other cultures or, at the very least, prepare for a fabulous trip abroad.

 

NEW LIVE REMOTE classes for Fall 2020!

These classes will be as much like a Face-to-Face course as possible.  You will be able to see and hear the instructors, other participants and see the instructor’s computer screen.   You are welcome to ask (or answer!) questions any time throughout the class. The instructor will be sending you an email containing a link to the course a few days prior to the start date.  If you do not have Zoom on your computer, it will be installed when you click the link. Please make sure that your computer or laptop has a microphone or PC speaker. A Windows PC or Apple Mac can be used.

Please email Sandy Zappala with questions at szappala@necc.mass.edu
